The annual sub-Freshman week 
end will be held on Friday and Sat- 
urday, April 24 and 25, it was an- 
nounced this week. There have 
been no absolutely definite plans 
made as yet for the entertain- 
ment of the prospective freshmen. 
There is, however, to be a base- 
ball frame with Maine on April 24. 
There is also a possibility that 
there will be a schoolboy track 
meet on April 25. This, however, 
has not been definitely planned.

Speaker Emphasizes Values 
Comradeship with 


At chapel Sunday afternoon, April 
12, President Sills spoke, using as his 
text a parable from the tenth chapter 
of the Gospel according to St John. 
He based his talk on the verse. "I am 
come that they might have life and 
that they might have it more abun- 

He opened by stating that at Easter 
the emphasis is placed on life, on the 
triumph of life over death. We are re- 
minded that life is the law of the uni- 
verse and that it is life that we seek. 
What is your interpretation of life? 
Is it a constant round of pleasures? 
That is the goal of many, carpe diem, 
a round of carnal pleasures; eat, drink 
and be merry for tomorrow you die. 
They say that we hear of religion no 
longer. An individual can lead a good 
life without the help of religion. Each 
has a right to do as he pleases. In 
current magazines we read articles 
with the same theme. In modern 
novels the hero is often one who fol- 
lows his own desires; and although the 
author tries to enlist our sympathy 
for the "noble independence" of the 
hero, more often he seems to us to be 
an overgrown and much spoiled child. 

Much of the prevalent interest and 
discussion of sex is pot disinterested 
desire for knowledge at all, but a dom- 
inant desire to get more animal pleas- 
ure out of life, actually or vicariously. 
Sex is a fundamental principle but not 
the only principle. Individual pleasure 
as an aim in itself has a disastrous ef- 
fect not only on the individual's life 
but on the life of those with whom he 
comes in contact Lack of considera- 
tion is a vice of our time. Perhaps it 
is a result of speed. Perhaps it is a 
part of youth. But it makes a man 
hard and cruel; it contracts, not ex- 
pands life. Some contend that people 
with a deep, sincere conviction are 
narrow-minded. Phillips Brooks has 
asserted to the contrary. A person con- 
vinced of his own truth is tolerant of 
others. Lack of consideration may be 
at the root of most racial, religious, 
and national prejudice. 

Christ's abundant life is the direct 
antithesis of this. It is based not on 
self-expression but on serf-saeriflee. It 
is a lasting basis of happiness. It 
sounds old-fashioned, but all that is 
old is not bad. Think over the friends 
or parents who are making sacrifices 
to put you through college. Would 
they have been happier if they had

four cardinal forces of life — work, 
play, love and worship — as explained 
by Richard C, Cabot in his hook, 
"What Men Live By". The Dean drew 
many illustrations for his talk from 
his personal experiences while serving 
on the college administration. 

The first outstanding element in the 
life of every man is work. Many men 
enjoy doing a type of work that to the 
casual observer would seem very dull 
or difficult. An old scrubwoman in 
Brunswick was once observed to sigh 
and groan on the half hours when col- 
lege classes were changing. On being 
asked the reason for her sadness she 
replied that she was sorry for the poor 
boys at college who would have to go 
to another class. The fact that her 
type -of work was usually regarded as 
the more unpleasant and difficult had 
not impressed her. 

Work Alone Must Not Dominate 

Work alone must not be allowed to 
predominate so as to drive out all oth- 
er interests and inclinations. A well 
known generalization, probably from 
Plato, states that the life of almost 
every successful man can be divided 
into three parts: when the man has 
time and no money, when he has 
money but no time, and finally when 
he has time and money but no. inter- 
ests and inclinations. A typical case 
is that of a certain "successful" busi- 
ness man who retired at forty-five with 
a large fortune to chase happiness 
around the world. He could not find 
happiness, not because he had any 
physical handicap or because he had 
suffered any bereavement, but be- 
cause he had no interests, no love of 
persons, places and scenes, no spiritual 
or intellectual interests, no love of 
games or hobbies. 

A Different Diversion 
• Of alt entirely different type waa a 
middle aged man who used to visit 
Boston about fifteen years ago and

Linn Wells, coach at Fairhaven 
High school for the past few years, 
will come to Bowdoin next year as 
assistant coach under head coach 
Charlie Bowser in baseball, football, 
and hockey, according to an announce- 
ment made last Saturday. Mr. Wells 
was appointed at the Spring meeting 
of the Athletic Council, and the se- 
lection was made from a long list of 
available men. 

The new assistant is a graduate of 
Springfield College and has had con- 
siderable experience in the three 
sports in which he will assist Bowser. 
He has enjoyed great success at Fair- 
haven High school; his last year's 
grid team losing only one game, and 
that to Boston College High school,

found elsewhere in the Orient. The

The first session of the Institute of 
Natural Sciences at Bowdoin College 
opened Tuesday evening, April 7. In 
introducing the Institute President 
Sills spoke as follows: 

"The purpose of the college in con- 
ducting this series of lectures and con- 
ferences in some of the natural 
sciences, termed institute for lack of a 
better word, is very simple. In the 
first place the public too often takes 
lively interest only in those activities 
of the college, athletic or social, 
which, all very well in their place, 
are not concerned with the work 
of the college as an institution of 
learning. By opening the lectures in 
her institutes to all who care to come 
and by accounts of the proceedings in 
the public press, to which we are 
deeply indebted, we feel that we may 
be able to convince our friends that 
first, last, and all the time the college 
strives to advance the intellectual and 
spiritual life of the community which 
it serves. 

"In the second place we wish to 
emphasize this year the properly high 
place which the natural sciences hold 
in any scheme of liberal education. 
I presume it is no exaggeration to 
say that a man, totally unfamiliar 
with the processes of science, under 
a skilled teacher and well-trained in- 
vestigator surely advances the free- 
dom of the human spirit."

Dr. Shapley, Director of the Har-

speaker at the. Institute, took as his 
subject "The Cosmic Panorama". He 
began his survey by making clear to 
the audience the place of the earth 
and its inhabitants in the universal 
scheme. From this as a starting 
point, Dr. Shapley discussed the solar 
system and then the solar neighbor- 
hood in which exist mysterious stars 
of unbelievably high density and with 
numerous sub-dwarfs known to us only 
because of their nearness to the sun. 
Next, the naked eye stars, some of 
them many hundreds of light years 
distant from us, were considered. It 
was shown how a study of the milky 
way was based on a study of certain 
faint variable stars. Through these

technical, these fears seem to have been dispelled. In fact it is 
just possible that this lecture series may have accomplished more 
than former ones in that it perhaps has drawn attention to a 
branch of knowledge too little heeded by the average undergrad- 
uate. If this is the case, if any fresh interest has been brought to 
the general field of natural science, quite aside from what those 
already working in the field got out of it, then it would seem that 
the Institute has well served its purpose.

With this issue of the Orient a new board comes into office, 
built up of men who have served for varying periods on the publi- 
cation. It will be noticed that there has been a certain amount of 
reorganization, of the form at least, of the staff, and elsewhere in 
this issue is a news story on that. However, perhaps a word of 
explanation here is not amiss and will be of interest to some. 

The primary purpose of the changes is to bring about a greater 
degree of coordination within the board* itself. Formerly there 
was a looseness to the construction that hampered efficiency and 
made it practically impossible to run the paper in a businesslike 
manner. During the past two or three years, however, there has 
been a constant effort to overcome this structural defect and to 
make the staff more of a unit, with the chief end the publication of 
a paper more satisfactory from every angle. The present reorgan- 
ization is the direct result of this effort, and we feel it is a long step 
forward, though more or less of an experimental move. The chief 
idea has been to remove deadwood from the board and to consoli- 
date the remainder into an active group that can and will work 
more or less together. 

Up until the present year the editor-in-chief has been rather 
detached from the rest of the board, in itself a bad feature. The 
last editor kept a closer contact than his predecessors had done, 
and the present plan is to make the editor's post more and more 
an integral part of the board, aside from the mere writing of edi- 
torials. To aid in making this possible the position of associate 
editor was created, to be filled by the managing editor who was not 
elected to the top position. It seemed a foolish thing to allow a 
ma i with three years of training on the paper and an active inter- 
est in it to be relegated to a background position. Yet this is what 
has always happened in past years. This new office, however, does 
away with that eventuality and places an experienced person in a 
position to work with the editor-in-chief in the determination of 
policy and in advancing staff efficiency and the better publication 
that should follow. 

To this end also the sports editorships were set up, to relieve 
the managing editors of the whole burden of getting out the paper 
and to make for* greater news-gathering ability and more accuracy. 
Formerly one managing editor each week worked practically alone 
in getting the paper to press, from the distribution of assignments 
to the correction of stories and making of headlines. Little wonder 
he sometimes made errors ! He even handled the type at the print- 
shop. This year the managing editors have had more assistance 
than ever before from the sophomores on the board. Under the 
new scheme, while the managing editor will still be the one respon- 
sible for getting the sheet out, he will have his task lightened by 
the assistance of one sports editor besides the work of the sub- 
editors. In this Way we hope to edit material more carefully and 
otherwise improve the quality of the paper's contents, besides in- 
creasing the actual amount of news. , 

In the past one of the greatest weaknesses has been the drop- 
ping of trained men nearly as soon as they "learned the ropes*'. 
The new system does not do away with this entirely — there must 
of necessity be some elimination — but it lessens the evils of the 
old system by retaining as many of these men as possible and pro- 
viding for the greater coordination thus required. 

Though the board has changed somewhat, both in personnel 
and in structure, the Orient remains as always. We shall improve 
it where we can. As to matters of policy and program we shall say 
little here, except that by and large we shall keep more or less con- 
tinuity with the last volume of the Orient. The situations that 
arise in a college community such as ours must by their very na- 
ture be dealt with on their merits as they arise. In line with the 
policy of former Orient boards we shall always be glad to publish 
signed communications, whether we agree with them or not, 
whether they are adverse to us, or favorable And to those who 
find themselves at odds with us on our handling of any subject, we 
suggest this means of recourse if they feel a rebuttal necessary.

which the so-called higher forms of 
life are known to be recorded. 
Fish First Vertebrates 

"The oldest known animals possess- 
ing a 'back-bone' were fishes. From 
them arose the first air-breathing ver- 
tebrates of the salamander type. The 
newly developed lungs were a modifi- 
cation of the old swimming bladder and 
did* not structurally replace the gills. 
In consequence of its relation to the 
blood stream the head region received 
blood that was only partially purified. 
Without adequate nourishment, brains 
had no opportunity for real improve- 
ment. The development of intelli- 
gence had to wait until this handicap 
had been overcome by the develop- 
ment of the four-chambered heart 
which characterizes the mammals. 

"With the close of the Mesozoic 
Era, the reptilian rulers were blotted 
out of existence. Promptly the 
placental offspring of the recently dis- 
covered Mongolian mammals, among 
whom were the first of the order to 
which man belongs, took possession of 
the vacant spheres of activity. 

"We find that by the middle of the 
Cenzoic Era, which followed the 
Mesozoic, there came into existence 
an intelligent anthropoid, more man- 
like in his habits than any existing 
ape. Almost certainly the upright at- 
titude resulted from the habit of 
swinging from branch tp branch 
among the trees, suspended by the 

"There seems to be no escape from 
the conclusion that the future history 
of man will likewise be under the 
sway of environmental factors. Abil- 
ity to respond to these factors is 
largely a matter of inheritance, and 
man is in a peculiarly fortunate posi- 
tion there. In his ancestral lineage 
there was no creature which, when 
tried in the balance, was found want 

effectors: urticating organs, such as 
are seen in the nettling organs of 
jelly fish, and which are serviceable 
to these animals in killing their prey 
and protecting themselves; glands ac- 
tive in the production of internal and 
external secretions; luminous organs 
for the production of light; chromato- 
phores, organs of color change; cilia, 
or minute protoplasmic lashes, by 

which smaller animals swim through 
the water or larger animals produce 
currents of water in and out of their 
bodies; muscles, the principal organs 
of movement; and, finally, electric or- 
gans, found in a few fishes, enabling 
them to deliver an electric shock that 
will stun animals. These seven or- 
gans are not all possessed by any one 

Animal Coloration 
The chromatophores, or color or- 
gans are particularly interesting in 
shrimps, fishes, frogs, toads, and liz- 
ards. In fishes these enable them to 
change color and to adapt themselves 
to the background. They are, under 
the direct influence of nerves. In 
frogs and toads the color changes aiv 
less obvious and are controlled by in- 
ternal secretions. Shrimps, that re- 
produce in great detail the color of 
their surroundings, control their 
chromatophores by internal secretions, 
although in these animals, as in all 
others, the eye is essential to their 
color responses.

The Institute 
Tomorrow evening brings the concluding lecture in the Insti- 
tute of Natural Sciences. On the whole, as with past Institutes 
held here, it has been a noteworthy event, and a project for which 
the College is to" be commended. The lectures have covered a re- 
markably diversified field, yet in the majority of cases they have 
offered something better than a mere encyclopaedic survey. Such 
a program as this one is exceedingly difficult to carry out, because 
the topics handled must be of rather general interest, presented in 
a way intelligible to those untrained in the particular field, and! 
yet offer something new to those already familiar with the subject 
in point. We appreciate this difficulty and feel that it has been j 
overcome rather well. At the outset it was feared in some quar- 
ters that the Institute would prove less popular this year than for- 
merly because of the essential limitations of the field- But when 
the first audiences discovered that the presentation was not too 

Professor Dayton C. Miller was the 
third lecturer at the Institute. Al- 
though presenting the whole field of 
physics, he confined himself to the 
I science of musical sounds and by 
I means of many striking demonstra- 
j tions brought home to his audience the 
] fundamental principles of this branch 
of physics. 

He explained the general nature of 
sound waves, showing clearly the 
physical distinction between noise 
and tone and the essential factors de- 
termining pitch loudness and tone 
quality. After he had established the 
fact that all musical tones are pro- 
duced by periodic vibrations and that 
all varieties of tone quality are due 
to particular combinations of a larger 
or smaller degree, he presented the 
facts to the eye by a series of ingen- 
ious experiments. The phonodeik for 
the development of which Professor 
Miller is largely responsible, was used 
in these demonstrations. The move- 
ments of the diaphragm of this in- 
strument are magnified forty thous- 
and times and produce on the screen a 
curve ten feet wide and forty feet 
long. In this way, vibrations coming 
from both string and wind instruments 
were shown. The sounds from a 
coloratura soprano appeared as living 
curves as the artist ran through some 
scales and sang a sketch from a song. 
Analysis of Sounds 

Professor Miller discussed Four- 
ier's theorem as affording a mathe- 
matical means of analysing sound 
curves. He then showed how the har- 
monic analyser, made at the Case 
School of Applied Science in Cleve- 
land, automatically carried out this 
intricate analysis and gave the simple 
tones which go to make up the most 
complex sounds. He explained the 
application of sound analysis and syn- 
thesis to the scientific study of 
phonetics and the teaching of vocal 
music and elocution. 

On the lecture platform were many 
instruments of interest which Profes- 
sor Miller used in illustrating his 
points. There were models of sound 
waves, tuning forks, and resonators. 
The musical instruments of which he 
analysed the sounds included the vio- 
lin, trumpet, and victrola. Professor 
Miller was assisted in his demonstra- 
tions by Miss Dorothy Robbins of the 
New England Conservatory of Music. 


The speaker Friday evening, April 
10, at the Institute was Professor 
George H. Parker, director of the 
Zoological Laboratory at Harvard. He 
discussed "Animal Coloration and its 
Bearing on the Question of the Ner- 
vous System." 

"The nervous system and its ap- 
pended parts", said Dr. Parker, "con- 
sist of three sets of organs: sense 
organs, such as the eye and ear; ad- 
juster organs, like the brain and spin- 
al cord; and effectors, organs by which 
animals respond to their environ- 

Dr. Parker went on to say that 
there were at least seven classes of

"Psychology, the youngest of the 
sciences, is only just cominjr to be re- 
srarded as a natural, rather than a so- 
cial, science," declared Professor Ed- 
win G. Borinsr, director of the Harvard 
Psychological Laboratory, in his lec- 
ture before the Institute of Natural 
Sciences. In his discussion, "The Rise 
of Scientific Psychology", the speaker 
strove to make clear the exact position 
of the science in the world today, by a 
delineation of its history, and a de- 
scription of some of the psychological 
tests recently conducted. 

Said Prof. Boring;, linking psychol- 
ogy to physiology: "Psychology has a 
great deal to sav of certain aspects of 
the mind as they are related to the 
physiology of the nervous system, but 
very much less that is positive of such 
topics as personality, motivation, and 
the social conduct of people. 

"Any science grows up naturally as 
the result of internal forces within it- 
self, and is not very greatly affected 
by the external demands (so insistent 
in the case of psychology) that it gives 
the answer to this or that practical 
problem. In psychology this develop- 
ment has been sure and gradual. The 
science has grown like an animal, with 
every stage following naturally upon 
the preceding stage." 

Defending Psychology 
Controversies in psychology are pe- 
culiar, in that they must be considered 
from a different angle than those 
evolving from other natural sciences. 
Prof. Boring continued: "A psychol- 
ogist defending a pet theory ought to 
know enough about the prejudicial ef- 
fect of emotion to realize how great 
are the chances of his being wrong. 
However, he does not. Fortunately 
... a prejudice turns out also to be a 
drive for further research. 

"Scientific psychology may be said 
to have separated itself from philos- 
ophy and physiology about seventy 
years ago. Thitherto mind had been 
thought of as impalpable and evanes- 
cent, and the establishment of 
elaborate precise quantitative meth- 
ods for measuring seemed a remark- 
able achievement." 

Fechner, Helmholtz and Wundt all 
contributed to the rise of experimen- 
tal psychology, as alienated from pure 
social science. The latter, according 
to the speaker, is usually called the 
father of scientific psychology. Ap- 
plication of these three men's methods 
soon led to rapid growth of the sub- 

Rise of Animal Psychology 
"Animal psychology," Prof. Boring 
went on, "under Darwin's influence, 
began in England. However, it was in 
America at the beginning of the pres- 
ent century that its experimental 
methods were developed, and America 
has since led in this field. The differ- 
entiation between psychology and 
physiology is disappearing, for work- 
ers in each invade the other's fields 
more and more. The chief distinction 
nowadays is historical and arbitrary. 

"With the mental tests the psychol- 
ogy of individual differences has de- 
veloped in America. With the study 
of abnormal psychology, the psychol- 
ogy of personality has developed in 
France and America. However . . . 
the successful experimentation and 
the quantification of these problems 
still lies mostly in the future. 

"Scientific psychology is becoming 
more and more distinguished from its 
progenitor, philosophy. It increases 
in experimentation, thus getting near- 
er and nearer the study of physiology." 
Concluded Prof. Boring: "We are 
learning a great deal, slowly but sure- 
ly, about the mental functions of the 
brain and the nervous system. The is- 
sue between introspectionism and be- 
haviorism is already dying out, and a 
general psychology, baaed upon both 
human and animal experimentation, is 
taking its place". 

irv* • 

With unemployment and the eco- 
nomic depression as a world-wide 
source of revolution and instability, 
the reports of the part taken by stu- 
dents in various countries in stimu- 
lating and leading the spirit of unrest 
by rioting and protest have received 
wide discussion in the college presb. j 

Within the last few days, Egyptian j 
students set fire to one of the Cairo { 
school buildings and later a large 
number of student strikers attacked 
those who refused to join them, with | 
the result that several were injured i 
when the police joined the fray. The j 
cause of the trouble seems to be agi- { 
tation against the existing govern- j 
ment, the new Constitution and elec- 
toral laws. 

Student rioting in Spain has con- 
tinued for some time. Law students 
in Barcelona showed an anti-monarch- 
istic spirit and those in Seville com- j 
bined rebellion against the govern- i 
ment with discontent against the uni- 
versity administration. 

A third example is found in South 
America where Peruvian Students 
overthrew Leguia and the Argentin- 1 
ians aided in the displacement of 

In contrast to this, there is the re- 
cent riot at Princeton resulting in de- 
struction of private property, rocking 
of interstate buses and the suspension 
of 42 men. Along the same lines is 
the traditional Yale freshman riot, the 

Gowns against Towns. Sedate Har- 
vard has representatives who have 
known the inside of a jail due to 
"boyish pranks". With a few excep- 
tions, such as the New York students 
who were jailed last winter because of 
too active sympathy with the garment 
workers' strike, most of the student 
riots in this country have been caused 
by mass meetings smacking strongly 
of football, tradition or "good spirits". 
An editorial in the Pennsylvanian 
does not advocate mob action as a 
principle, but points out the desir- 
ability of rioting over political, re- 
ligious, social and economic issues 
rather than puerile rebellions against 
the local police. The last European 
riots at least indicate an awareness 
of existing problems not found to any 
great extent among young American 
students. Another opinion expressed 
in this week's college press on rioting 
in the American universities is that 
such purposeless destruction is stupid 
and ought to be discouraged much 
more emphatically than has been done 

Professor Frost of Dartmouth re- 
cently put on the blackboard for his 
final examination in a poetry course, 
"Do the thing that you think will 
please me most". Some students 
wrofe original poems, others critical 
essays; some praised the professor 
who disliked so to give examinations; 
but one, taking the rfrofessor at his 
word, got up and left the room. 

The Fascist government has 
founded a school of journalism in 
Rome — the first of its kind to be 
established in Italy. 


It looms up large 
in their lives 

THE telephone has a big place in the daily lives of 
most people today, but its place will be even big- 
ger tomorrow. 

Its importance has been fostered by the work of 
men in all phases of the telephone business and no 
little part has been taken by those engaged in selling. 
They have helped to effect an increase of more than 
three and a half million Bell telephones in the last 
five years. In the same period they have been instru- 
mental in making the public realize more completely 
the telephone's usefulness. Result: an increase from 
49,000,000 calls per day to 65,000,000. 

Men with a leaning toward sales promotion will 
always play an important part in Bell System growth.

A questionnaire recently distributed 
to students in an ethics class at Thiel 
college contained this problem: "Sup- 
pose you were crossing the desert 
when it was found that due to lack 
of water only three could be allowed 
to live. What three would you save ? 
Included in the group were two 
guides, a wife, a husband, their son, 
two scientists and one who was your 
friend." The returns were as follows: 
The friend would have been saved 
first, for 36 members of the class voted 
that he should be the last to die; 23 
would have the son live; 7 in the class 
would 'save themselves first and none 
would allow the wife to live.

"These articles," continued Dr. 
Herty, "when put together in book 
form . . . stirred not only capitalists, 
but inventors to the fundamental im- 
portance of this subject. With the 
ground now so thoroughly prepared, 
industrial research became so perma- 
nent a factor in our economic life that 
when the present industrial depression 
came ... it was more extensively de- 
veloped." * 

Concluded the lecturer, stressing the 
need for trained men: "Such develop- 
ments have made a heavy demand for 
men trained in the graduate depart- 
ments of our universities; compensa- 
tion for such has increased, and the 
scientific man has been placed on a 
higher ranking in the esteem of our 
people. No one factor can claim the 
credit for such a development, but 
surely chemistry can claim a whole- 
some share." « 

To Lecture Thursday 

Edwin G. Conklin, Ph.D. 




(Continued from pass t) 

"Out of the travail of a nation at 
war there came to America the bless- 
ing of industrial research," began Doc- 
tor Charles H. Herty, former presi- 
dent of the American Chemical So- 
ciety, in his speech to the Institute of 
Science Monday evening. Dr. Herty 
was lecturing on "The Service of 
Chemistry in the Promotion of Indus- 
trial Research in America." 

The speaker pointed out the great 
war-time problems that faced this 
country: economic and military. "Gas 
warfare," he said, "loomed largely as 
the determinative factor of that great 
struggle, and we were totally unpre- 
pared. Our scientific efforts up to that 
time had been confined to the paths of 

Scientific leaders, embracing a na- 
tion-wide scope were enrolled for the 
emergency, and at the American Uni- 
versity Experiment Station, near the 
Capital, strict preparations were made 
to combat poison gas. "The grave im- 
portance of this work, and the secrecy 
surrounding its details caught the im- 
agination of our people." 

Alarming Dye Shortage 

"The publication of the German Am- 
bassador's cable to his government 
that by withdrawing shipments of 
dyes to the United States four million 
workers would be thrown out of em- 
ployment, startled the nation." Dr. 
Herty continued by detailing the pub- 
lic's reaction to this indication of "eco- 
nomic slavery"; confidence in Ameri- 
can chemists was absolutely lacking, 
for the mass of people still clung to 
the "myth of the German super-chem- 

"Research solved the problems," 
said the lecturer, "and there quickly 
sprang into existence a dye industry 
which utilized our hitherto largely 
wasted raw material, and soon gave an 
over-abundance of products of every 
range of color, shade and fastness." 

Telling of the gradual rise of such 
experimental work in public opinion. 
Dr. Herty declared: "... the word 
RESEARCH, so long considered as 
one of strictly academic surroundings, 
became translated into industrial lines 
and gradually won popular esteem." 
Great Companies Aided 

General Electric and Eastman Ko- 
dak Companies, utilizing their great 
research laboratories and trained 
staffs set the example for research 
work. "The very greatness of their 
work," stated Dr. Herty, "precluded 
the carrying over of the same idea 
into concerns of lesser magnitude." 

Education of the public along this 
line was largely carried on by the an- 
nual Exposition of Chemical Indus- 
tries, "where the public could see at 
first hand the fruits of research, and 
where the press could gather fascinat- 
ing stories of accomplishments." 

Depression of 1921 

Primary among industrial depart- 
ments curtailed by the depression of 
1921 were the research bureaus. Ex- 
perimentation fell off alarmingly, un- 
til a stirring editorial in the New York 
Times attracted the public again to the 
importance of research. A series of 
articles in the New York Commercial, 
headed "What Price Progress" 
brought home the point vividly, the 
keynote of the great jourml's edito- 

Exploration of the little known cor- 
ners of the globe still lures bold men 
of the pioneer stock, just as it did sev- 
eral generations ago. Thus did Doctor 
Isaiah Bowman, director of the Amer- 
ican Geographical Society, maintain in 
his lecture last night, "The Invitation 
of the Earth", in the series of Natural 
Science Institute discussions. 

"The pioneering spirit of our fore- 
fathers is by no means dead," declared 
the speaker, "but the type of pioneer 
has changed with the years. Men are 
now much more conscious of the many 
thing-s thev have left behind them in 
the older communities from which they 
have come, as contrasted to the little 
they left behind in the classic days of 

Thousands of Modern Pioneers 

Dr. Bowman related tales of the 
hundreds of thousands of settlers now 
streaming across frontier lines and ad- 
vancing on the edge of the plowed land 
on five continents. "In consequence of 
this relinquishment," he continued, 
"they demand that the government 
shall make up a large part of the dif- 

" 'Everybody wants everything' on 
the frontier as well as in Portland. 
Maine," laughed the lecturer. Employ- 
ing lantern slides and huge maps to 
illustrate his talk. Dr. Bowman showed 
some of the extraordinary reasons why 
men are building communities on the 
world's frontiers, and how widely these 
communities are distributed. 

Pioneering in America still' exists, 
according to the lecturer; in proof Dr. 
Bowman made reference to the 
settling of the "Jordan Country", a 
region in Montana, which was studied 
in some detail last summer. 

Present an Age of Discovery 

"The world is as new as its newest 
idea," said the speaker, showing how 
men have interested themselves with 
the last of the pioneering lands. He 
demonstrated how geography is con- 
cerned with the play between a world 
of material things, and a world of 
ideas in men's minds as to how to use 
the earth. 

Continued the speaker: "We are liv- 
ing in a greater aee of discovery than 
that in which was first traced the 
American and African coasts. This is 
a world of property, laws, customs, at- 
titudes, forests, plains, and mountains: 
but it is also a world of ideas, many 
of them not yet realized, and some of 
them not yet realizable." 

As Dr. Bowman concluded, he em- 
phasized the fact that "the science of 
settlement" is being built today 
throueh an application of geographi- 
cal ideas and techniques to undevel- 
oped land. These conditions are of 
particular interest in view of the fact 
that much occupied land has been 
abandoned, and that the problem of 
abandoned farms is not only acute in 
most of the United States, but also in 
many other countries. 


Among the recent additions to the 
reading room is "The Story of San 
Michele" by Axel Munthe. This book 
is an autobiography which is strang- 
er than fiction. It is the life story of 
the famous European doctor and is 
crammed with adventure — amusing, 
tragic, peaceful, and hair-raising. 

Andre Maurois, the .author of 
"Ariel" and "Disraeli" finds an 
equally suitable subject for his stud- 
ies in Byron. Maurois handles the 
character of the handsome and dissi- 
pated poet who dazzled his genera- 
tion with wit and penetration, and he 
does this with the insight and sym- 
pathy which make him distinguished 
among biographers. This book is 
longer than his previous biographies 
and is also more inclusive in its struc- 
ture. Several years of preparation 
have gone into the writing of this 

"The Daughters of Eve", by Gam- 
aliel Bradford, author of "The Quick

Catherine the Great is the only

much in common with these other 
strangely interesting ladies revealed 
in this volume of one of the most 
famous biographers. 

"The Education of a Princess," by 
The Grand Duchess Marie of Russia: 
this story begins with the life of the 
mediaeval pomp of an imperial court 
and from there sweeps on to the chaos 
of war and revolution. Then is told 
the life of a woman after the revolu- 
tion who up to this time is carefully 
guarded. There is a very human ap- 
peal in this dramatic autobiography 
of one of the last Romanovs. 

"Arundel", by Kenneth Roberts is a 
fine historical novel of Revolutionary 
days and of Arnold's great march 
against Quebec. Booth Tarkington 
calls "Arundel" "a book that would be 
liked by anybody who liked 'Lorna 
Doone', 'The Three Musketeers', 'The 
White Company', or 'A gentleman of 
France.' Whoever reads the great 
I episode and climax of this story, the 
American march on Quebec, will not 
i only better know the history of our 
! country but must also feel that he 
| took part in that homeric struggle 
', through the wilderness himself."

A story to be read by those busi- 
ness-minded young men who believe 
in the romance of steel, cylinders, 
blast furnaces, wheels, cogs, and at 
last locomotives is "Steaming Up!" 
by Samuel M. Vaudain. S. M. V., as 
the author chooses to call himself, 
having been "in" locomotives ever 
since his first trip at the age of four 
in a caboose through the Allegheny 
mountains, has written a vocational 
but amusing account of his steps in 
becoming (1919) president of the 
Baldwin Locomotive Works and a«w 
chairman of the board. It is a nar- 
rative of "from the ground up." 

The Chancellor of Syracuse Uni- 
versity in his welcoming address to 
freshmen predicted that within four 
years the three "R's" would-be re- 
placed by the three "S's" — studies, 
sports, and social life in the college. 

"On the whole the evidence is very 
striking that there is a direct rela- 
tion between high marks in college 
and salaries afterward in the Bell 
System," according to Walter S. Gif- 
ford, president.

Beginning next year the University 
of Chicago will discontinue all class 
ranking such as freshman, sophomore, 
junior and senior. Faculty and stu- 
dents are to be merged into one com- 
mon life, so that fraternity life will 
be overshadowed. This change will 
cause a flexible curriculum to be 
adopted and will leave the utmost 
freedom for the individual advance- 
ment of a student. This plan is suc- 
cessfully used at the University of

N. S. F. A. NEWS 

College girls don't get enough par- 
ties, don't go out enough, spend too 
much time studying, is the claim of 
the Dean of Hunter College. 

"There's entirely too much reading 
going on," Professor Morse S. Allen 
of Trinity college declared recently in 
a lecture on "Over-reading" to a 
group of approximately 75 women. 

Erection of a new $25,000 home for 
University of Michigan student pub- 
lications, to be completed within 18 
months, has been authorized by the 
Board in Control of Student Publica- 
tions at the Ann Arbor school. 

The faculty of the University of 
Rochester recently voted to do away 
with all eight o'clock classes, having 
decided it was better for the students 
to sleep in their own rooms instead of 
the classrooms. 

Big Ten Official Says 
Perm's Athletic System 
Will Be Widely Adopted 

Girls are far better sleepers than 
men, according to Dr. Donald Laird, 
"expert" on the subject of sleep and 
professor of psychology at Colgate 
University, where a recent sleep sur- 
vey was held. 

An intercollegiate good sleep con- 
test was held between the men at Col- 
gate and the women at Skidmore col- 

"The current criticisms raised to 
college athletics are over-emphasis 
and commercialization, but I do not 
believe that either of these exist to 
the extent supposed," said Major John 
L. Griffith, commissioner of athletics 
in the Western Conference in an inter- 
view in The Pennsylvanian recently. 
Major Griffith is especially compe- 
tent to give an opinion on college ath- 
letics since he has been connected 
with intercollegiate sports since 1902 
when he started as director of ath- 
letics at Yankton College, S. D. Dur- 
ing the war he played a conspicuous 
part in the physical development of 
thousands of officers and men of the 
army. In 1919 he was appointed di- 
rector of the Coaching School of the 
University of Illinois where he con- 
tinued until the Big Ten called him to 
be its arbiter. 

"However, I believe that the Penn- 
sylvania system," continued Major 
Griffith, "will go a long way toward 
correcting the evils which do exist 
in college athletics. There are three 
things about the Gates plan which I 
like especially. The first is that its 
centralized administration will permit 
the greatest possible efficiency in the 
work, in that everyone will be working 
together for one thing, the develop- 
ment of student health. Second, it 
will reach more students. Every un- 
dergraduate will be given an opportu- 
nity to participate in the sport he 
likes best. The third important fac- 
tor is that of education. No longer 
will the sole purpose be to produce 
winning teams but rather the purpose 
will be to give the athletes some edu- 
cation through the sport that they are 


Resulting figures showed that girls 
have less trouble going to sleep, wake 
up fewer times during the night, are 
less restless, and have fewer dreams. 

In addition, fewer girls have to be 
called twice in the morning and in 
general feel more peppy and less 
grouchy and are less foggy mentally 
in the morning.

While the home club was amassing 
her eight runs the Polar Bears were 
finding it hard work to touch effec- 
tively the pitching of MacHale. In 
the first "Sonny" Dwyer cracked out. 
a triple but was rewarded with no op- 
portunity to reach home. With one 
down in the sixth, Ricker came 
through with a one base wallop which 
left him stranded on the initial sack 
for the remainder of the inning. Mc- 
Kown showed the fans that Ben Hous- 
er had him in the clean-up position 
for a good reason when he poled out 
hi3 mighty four-bagger in Bowdoin's 
last chance with the bat. 

During the whole game, the White 
played genuine heads up baseball 
worthy of the smart new uniforms 
they were exhibiting. In the sixth 
Parmenter started a double play to 
Crimmins which nipped McGrath and 
Ticknor. When the team tightens up 
a little in the hurling department, 
they appear capable of making a 
potent bid for the State Title.

Prof. Laird attributes this to the 
theory that members of the feminine 
sex are neither as active physically or 
mentally as men. 

"Only four hours may be sufficient 
to recuperate physically," he main- 
tains, "but mentally may need eight 
hours more to be completely rested." 



Polo and jumping, sports which up 
to now have been comparatively unno- 
ticed in Bowdoin athletic circles, have 
recently received an added impetus of 
interest from the students. Notwith- 
standing the difficulties of launching 
a new sport in college, polo claims a 
large squad. 

The present leading men in the 
group are Free Harlow. Edward Ful- 
ler, Hall Stiles, Gilbert Barstow. 
Stuart Meade, Richard Perry, Roger 
Buffington, Bernard Ford. Louis 
Roehr. and Winthrop Prescott. The 
men entertain high hopes that polo 
will become a recognized athletic ac- 
tivity at Bowdoin. 

If sufficient interest in jumping is 
aroused it is a possibility that there 
will be a team organized to compete 
next fall. Practice in polo has been 
carried on to some extent this spring: 
several chukkers being played last 
Saturday by members of the squad.

The loss of Captain Sid Foster. 
Creighton Gatchell, and others from 
the track team at last week's review 
of classes was bad news to us all, and 
particularly to Jack Magee. But the 
only apparent effect on the other ath- 
letes of this setback has been to dou- 
ble each man's individual efforts in 
training, and the morale of the group 
is fully as high, as before. The team 
is still out there to win. 

Bates is the team that the Polar 
Bear trackmen have to beat in the 
State Meet, according to the present 
outlook. And Bates has never yet de- 
feated Bowdoin on the cinders since 
Jack Magee's debut here eighteen 
years ago. The 1925 State Meet, with 
the Bobcats scoring 40 points to Bow- 
doin's 41, was the occasion of Jack's 
closest call in that respect. 

Charleyi Paddock, in selecting an all- 
time all-American track team recent- 
ly, chose#red D. Tootell '23. for ham- 
mer thn^rer. Tootell, by virtue of his 
conquests in this country and at the 
Olympic games at Paris, in 1924, is 
probably Bowdoin's most widely 
known athletic son. Among his laurels 
was the distinction of being the only 
man not of Irish birth ever to beat 180 
feet in the hammer throw. 

Arthur Siegel of the "Boston Her- 
ald" threw the Bowdoin ball team sev- 
eral bouquets in the course of his 
writeup of the Harvard game, among 
them this one: "Ben Houser had the 
Bowdoin team playing heads-up base- 
ball all the time. The boys knew how 
to wear their uniforms and how to 
play up to them." 

Judging from the box score, George 
Souther allowed the Crimson batters 
only seven scattered bingles. but sand- 
wiched in enough passes to put the 
game out of reach. He did well 
enough, however, with the high wind, 
a doubtful aim, the shortness of the 
practice season, and a very powerful 
opposing club as factors to work 

We learn from the Lewiston "Eve- 
ning Journal" of last Saturday that 
the sogginess of Garcelon Field has 
thus far prevented the Bates ball team 
from holding outdoor practice. The 
mental attitude of the Bowdoin team 
could not be better than after a de- 
feat in their first game, and this fact, 
combined with their earlier start, 
makes the White a likely winner of 
the game at Lewiston next Monday. 


Sunlamps are a popular feature of the suimmmg pool at 
Hotel St. George, Brooklyn, N. Y. 

)LLEGE-TRAINED electrical engineers 
cooperated with the medical profession in 
developing G-E products that safeguard 
health. Notable among these are the x-ray 
tube, the G-E refrigerator, and the G-E 
Sunlamp. Of these three, the Sunlamp is 
the latest development, but it has already 
been acclaimed for its service in helping 
build that vitality which maintains 
the happiness of good health. 

At Cornell University, members of 
"cold - prevention classes" (under 
daily, brief, ultra-violet-ray lamp 
treatments) reported 40 percent less 
colds than were reported by class- 


mates in a group without this treatment. 
Beyond home and college, the use of Sun- 
lamps has extended to swimming pools and 
indoor golf courses. In the future, you may 
enjoy the Sunlamp as a standard fixture 
in offices, trains, clubs, and many other 
places where people gather. 

And you may continue to expect 
new, unusual, and useful develop- 
ments from G-E engineering and re- 
search. Among such products, there 
will doubtless be further contribu- 
tions to personal health, comfort, 
and convenience, as well as to the 
promotion of industrial efficiency.

A recent estimate by Isis, an Ox- 
ford undergraduate weekly publica- 
tion, that more than $1,000,000 was 
owing to trades people by university 
students has caused the parents of a 
number of undergraduates to appeal 
to the Oxford Chamber of Trade to 
cut off the credit of their sons. In com- 
pliance the Chamber has circulated a 
list of the students concerned among 
members of the Chamber. 

Springfield College announces that

Student Council Issues Statement 
To Delay Interclass Demonstrations 

Extensive interclass demonstra- 
tions, appearing many days before the 
expected Freshman Banquet and the 
fear that disturbances might be con- 
tinued for two weeks, led the Stu- 
dent Council to release a statement 
criticising the freshman and sopho- 
more action of the last week and urg- 
ing restraint until a few days pre- 
vious to the banquet. 

A. L. Crimmins '31, speaking for 
this body, suggested that all such ac- 
tivities be avoided until tomorrow, 
because of conflict with more impor- 
tant phases of the college. He like- 
wise made a preliminary announce- 
ment of a flag rush between the two 
lower classes, to take place this week. 

The following is the statement of 
affairs issued by the Student Council: 
To the classes of '33 and '34: 

At a recent meeting of the Student 
Council, we were informed that the 
much expected Freshman Banquet 
will not take place until after next

Final Lecturer 

Lectures by Dr. Florence R. Sabin 
on tuberculosis and by Dr. Edwin G. 
Conklin on evolution last Wednesday 
and Thursday brought the Bowdoin 
College Institute of Natural Sciences 
to a most successful conclusion. Large 
audiences were in attendance at all 
lectures, which were representative 
of all fields of scientific endeavor. 

In a very technical lecture last 
Wednesday evening, Dr. Florence R. 
Sabin of the Rockefeller Institute, 
brought to the Natural Science In- 
stitute by the Bowdoin Society of 
Women, made the statement that im- 
munity from tuberculosis is practi- 
cally impossible, but that a careful de- 
velopment of resistance is the best 

Dr. Sabin said that when Pasteur 
discovered bacteria fifty years ago it 
seemed that they would be quickly 
conquered because of the success with 
diphtheria for which there is a defi- 
nite toxin and anti-toxin. There are 
very few bacteria, however, for which 
there is such a simple reaction. The 
main purpose of her lecture was to 
show just why tuberculosis is so diffi- 
cult to conquer. 

Experiments With Bacteria 

About 1900 a new substance was 
found by taking a toxin and then a 
culture of it The ' result was the 
formation of a precipitate and a sub- 
stance which was called the "specific 
soluble substance" because it was 
definitely connected with the bacteria 
and was soluble. This was done with 
the diphtheria bacteria. It was found 
that in a culture two colonies of or- 
ganism would grow. One of these 
had a capsule which, when analysed, 
was found to be of sugar. It was fur- 
ther discovered that this capsule 
acted as a protection for the organ- j 
ism and prevented the organism from 
being taken into the cell and killed. 
This was given by Dr. Sabin to show ; 
just what could be done in regard to | 
bacteria, although it will be ten or 
fifteen years before the problem is 

The tuberculosis germ, Dr. Sabin 
said, was not the same. It is, how- "Wurzel-Flummery", A. A. Milne's

On Tuesday evening, April 28, Pro-

Professor of International Politics at 
the University of Wales, Abersyst-

lounge of the Moulton Union. The 
lecture will be presented to the col-

Dr. Webster's professorship at the 
University of Wales provides that the 
incumbent must be absent from the 
university one-half of the time. In ac- 
cordance with this provision, Professor 
Webster is now lecturing at Harvard 
as a visiting professor of history. A 
few years ago, Professor Webster 
went to Japan where he attended the 
Pan-Pacific Conference. 

Lecturer Has Distinguished Career 

Professor Webster was born in En*- 1 ^ tra JKiX°

Modern History at Liverpool Univer- 
sity from 1914 to 1922. From 1915 to 
1917 he served as a subaltern in the 
British army. After the war he was 
sent to Paris as Secretary of the Mili- 
tary Section of the British delegation 
to the Conference of Paris. In 1922 
he was appointed to his present pro- 
fessorship at the University of Wales. 

Professor Webster is considered an 
authority in the field of modern his- 
tory, particularly modern diplomacy, 
and has written many books on the 
subject. His books include: "The

At a recent meeting of the board of 
directors of the Bowdoin Publishing 
Company, Dominic N. Antonucci '32 
was elected Business Manager of the 
Bowdoin Orient The elective body, 
composed of Professors Mitchell and 
Van Cleve, Paul A. Walker '31. and 
Artine Artinian '31, likewise selected 
Francis H. Donaldson '33 and Edward 
H. Morse '33 as assistant managers. 

Freshman aspirants for positions as 
assistant managers were summoned to 
a meeting at which their duties were 
explained to them by the new staff. 
The freshmen applying were eight in 
number: R Atwood, D. Braithwaite, J. 
Brookes. H. Everett, R. Foster. J. 
Guptill. R C. Mandeville, and C. Red- 
man. The new men. working under 
the direction of Morse and Donaldson, 
will take an active part, at present, in 
the publishing of the Orient. Later 
they will be charged with getting ad- 
vertisements for the paper. 

D. N. Antonucci succeeds Artine Ar- 
tinian as manager of the company and 
will henceforth have charge j>l the 
business affairs of the Orient. 

"Wthat is human nature" ? asked the 
Rev. Harold I. Merrill, of Brunswick, 
at chapel Sunday afternoon. April 19. 
He gave instances of what most peo- 
ple think of human nature, the lower 
thoughts and aspirations, and showed 
manifestations that are just as much 
human nature as the first examples. 
He ended with a plea for peace and a 
realization that war is not human na- 
ture, nor inevitable. 

Tomorrow, said Rev. Mr. Merrill, 
is Patriots' Day and there will be 
many speakers who will boast of our 
ancestry, talk about national prepared- 
ness and against entangling alliances. 
"War is inevitable, it is human na- 
ture," they will say. What is human 
nature? Most people would say that 
to look out for oneself is human na- 
ture. A French physician was work- 
ing with the X-Ray when there was 
no protection afforded the doctor. A 
tell-tale spot appearea on his hand. 
Against the advice of others he worked 
on. Soon his hand was amputated. 
Later his arm, up to the elbow, and 
still later up to his shoulder, had to 
be cut off. Finally his left hand and 
arm were amputated. That, too, is 
human nature. 

Robert E. Lee and Restraint 

Some would say that human nature 
is to feel bitterness toward anyone 
who inflicts an injury. General Robert 
E. Lee was seated at his house one 
evening after the war was over when 
he received a telegram to the effect 
that he was to be punished, a thing 
quite contrary to a federal law cover- 
ing such cases. His friends in the 
house with him spoke out without re- 
straint, especially the minister of the 
church which Lee attended. When the 
others had gone Lee went to the door 
with the minister and said: "My 
friend, I read from a book; you preach 
from it. And it says, 'Love your ene- 
mies, bless them that curse you, do 
good to them that hate you, and pray 
for them which despitefully use you 
and persecute you.' " 

A young man was taken in a garden 

by a group of Roman soldiers. His 

followers deserted him on the spot. 

That was human nature. He had been 

by one professing the deep- 

d love. That was

On Friday and Saturday of this 
week over sixty prospective freshmen 
are expected at the college to attend 
the annual Sub-Freshman week end. 
About three hundred invitations have 
been sent out by the College to men in 
fitting schools suggested by the va- 
rious fraternities or enrolled for ad- 
mission next year. 

A program of entertainment for the 
visitors has been planned by the com- 
mittee in charge headed by Professor 
Wilmot B. Mitchell, designed to ac- 
quaint the guests with the intellectual, 
social and athletic life of the College. 
On Friday afternoon, the visitors will 
attend a baseball game between Bow- 
doin and Maine at Pickard Field. In 
the evening they will be able to hear 
Professor Richards of Cambridge in a 
lecture on "Contemporary Poetry". 

On Saturday morning the President 
will probably speak before the pro- 
spective freshmen in chapel and in the 
afternoon, the athletic department will 
schedule some form of athletic contest, 
such as a schoolboy track meet. The 
visitors will be allowed to visit the 
regular classes of the College on Fri- 
day and Saturday. They will be enter- 
tained during their stay in Brunswick 
at the various fraternity houses. 

Malcolm E. Morrell, director of ath- 
letics, has supplied the Orient an ex- 
cellent biography in miniature of 
Linn Wells, who will come to Bow- 
doin next fall in the capacity of as- 
sistant to head coach, Charlie Bowser. 
Wells is a Maine man, having come 
from the town of Wilton, where he at- 
tended Wilton Academy. He grad- 
uated from Springfield College in 
1922, and began coaching high school 
athletics in Pennsylvania. 

Since 1928 Wells has been head 
coach at the high school in Fairhaven, 
Massachusetts, where his accomplish- 
ments have given him an enviable 
reputation. His football teams have 
never once been defeated by Fall Riv- 
er or New Bedford, traditional rivals, 
and both larger schools than Fair- 
haven. Last year's eleven was van- 
quished only by Boston College High 
School, considered one of the best 
teams in New England. 

During his three years at Fairhav- 
en, Wells has developed some very 
good track teams. His 1930 edition 
scored 16 points in the Bowdoin In- 
terscholastic meet last month, placing 
fourth in the high school class. Field 
event men especially have developed 
fast under his hand. 

Another strong point with Wells is 
baseball. After playing in Maine for 
sometime, he became manager of the 
Falmouth team in the Cape League. 
He is famed for his accurate techni- 
cal knowledge of the sports he 
coaches, and for strict discipline. 
Wells" is thirty-one years old and mar- 
ried. "The little man with the big 
voice", as he is sometimes known, 
will be on trial during his first year 
at Bowdoin. 

Coach Jack Magee, commenting on 
the addition of Wells to the coaching 
staff, said, "I have known him well 
for a number of years. He is one of 
the best of the younger coaches in 
New England."

Alfred Brinkler of Portland to Give 

Interesting and Varied 



James C. Flint '31, president of the 
New England Intercollegiate Athletic 
Association, recently appointed a 
committee of seven coaches to revise 
that section of the constitution known 
as "Rules of Athletics". The com- 
mittee includes coaches John J. Ma- 
gee of Bowdoin, Bart Sullivan of 
Holy Cross, Oscar Hedlund of Mas- 
sachusetts Tech, Charles F. Seeley of 
Williams, John A. Ryder of Boston 
College, J. Fred Powers of Brown, 
and Mike Ryan of Colby. The first 
meeting of this committee is to be 
held next Sunday at the Boston Ath- 
letic Association. 

Instead of the usual talk next Sun- 
day afternoon in chapel, Alfred 
Brinkler, F.A.G.O.. A.RC.0., organist 
at Saint Luke's. Cathedral in Portland, 
will give an organ recital. Mr. Brink- 
ler is conductor of the Portland Men's 
Singing Club and the Portland Poly- 
phonic Society. He has appeared fre- 
quently before Bowdoin audiences, his 
last appearance being in Sunday 
chapel last March. At present he has 
taken charge of the college music 
classes during the illness of Professor 

Mr. Brinkler will present a varied 
program which will be of interest to 
all music lovers. His program will 
consist of: 

Athaliah Overture, Handel; We 
Wandered, Brahms; Toccatta and 
Fuge, Bach; Largo from the New 
World Symphony, Dvorak; Fountain 
Revery, Fletcher; Hungarian Dance. 
Brahms; Gavotte Moderne, Lemare; 
Toccatta, Boelman. 

Professor Ivan Armstrong Richards 
of Magdalene College, Cambridge 
University will lecture here on Fri- 
day evening, April 24, on the subject 
of "Modern Poetry". This lecture will 
come as one of the additional features 
of the annual Sub-Freshman week 

Professor Richards has been edu- 
cated at Clifton and at Magdalene 
College. He was the lecturer on Eng- 
lish and Moral Sciences in 1922. In 
1929-30 he was the visiting professor 
at Tsing Hua University in Peking. 

Several important literary works 
have come from Professor Richards' 
pen; these are: "Foundations of 
Aesthetics"— 1921; "The Meaning of 
Meaning"— 1923; "Principles of Lit- 
erary Criticism" — 1924; "Science and 
Poetry"— 1925; "Practical Criticism" 

Bowdoin's ball nine gave Bates' 
title hopes a severe jolt in the series 
opener at Lewiston Patriot's Day to 
the tune of a 7 to 1 defeat. Ben 
Houser's boys were in there to win 
and they certainty displayed a wide 
awake brand of baseball to the crowd 
of three or four hundred that viewed 
the contest. The White had little 
difficulty with Milieu's offerings and 
smacked them for ion solid safeties. 
On the other hand Ben Shute kept the 
Garnet batters guessing at all rimes 
and they managed to eke out only five 
hits, which were well scattered. The 
only run that Bates pushed across the 
rubber was an unearned one in the 
closing frame. Sonny Dwyer led the 
barrage of hitting for the Brunswick 
boys clubbing out four bingles in five 
times at the plate; McKown at third 
stole the fielding show with four dif- 
ficult assists. 

Three Runs In the Fourth 

Ricker started by caroming the 
horsehide off Toomey's leg to reach- 
first. Whittier bunted him along to 
second and then Dwyer clipped one 
down between first and second which 
Hedderick booted allowing the Bow- 
doin backstop to make first. One 
error not being enough, the little 
Bates second baseman fumbled Mc- 
Kown's roller allowing Ricker to score 
and the batter to reach first. Neither 
Rose nor Bennett could get the ball 
out of the infield, and Bowdoin's half 
of the inning came to an end. 

In the second Crimmins managed to 
work his way around the bases after 
getting hit by a pitched ball for the 
second unearned run. He was aided 
by Herb Berry's error which allowed 
Parmenter to take the initial sack. 
In her half of the same stanza, the 
Garnet threatened to score for the 
first time. Ted Brown walked with one 
away. Kennison followed by crashing 
out the first hit for Bates. Brown 
went to third and Kennison went down

Overcome Field of 150 from 

State in Patriots' Day 


Further laurels were added to Bow 
doin's name when Dick Mullin '32 won 
the Maine State Golf Tournament 
here last Monday. He won the low 
gross medal with a score of 77 for the 
eighteen holes. He took 41 for the 
first nine holes, and 36 for the last 
nine. He had no handicap, but even 
without one he proved far in advance 
of the other players of the field. Har- 
ris M. Plaisted '33 showed his skill 
by winning the second net medal. His 
score for the course was 89, but with 
a handicap of 22, he received a low 
of 67. 

Considering that there was a field 
of 150 in the tournament, it speaks 
well for the men who won it. It also 
speaks well for the success of the 
golf team this year. Bowdoin did not 
enter a team in the tournament, and 
so Mullin and Plaisted were playing 
for individual clubs. Mullin was as- 
sociated with the Brunswick Club 
while Plaisted was with the Webhan- 
net Country Club. 

Juniors to Enter Annual 
Plummer Prize Speaking 
Contest Tomorrow Night 

Six juniors will compete tomorrow 
evening in the annual Plummer Prize 
Speaking Contest which will take 
place in the Debating Room of the 
Library at 7 o'clock. Two faculty 
members and the expressed vote of 
the audience will judge the results. 

This annual oratorical event is open 
to all juniors. The speeches are origi- 
nal compositions, to be considered on 
the basis of both the literary value 
and the manner in which they are de 
i livered. The organization, grammar, 
: and other technical points compose 
j half the grounds for judging. 

In the contest will appear: Norman 
l P. Easton, Creighton Gatchell, J. H. 
; Jenkins, J. W. Keefe, George Pottle 
: and Lincoln Smith. 

The freshman swimming team will 
compete with the Auburn Y.M.C.A. in 
a meet next Saturday night at eight 
o'clock in the Curtis pool. It will give

Professor Mitchell Gives Address at 

Formal Presentation of the 

Abraxas Cup 

On Friday morning the Abraxas 
Cup, won this year by the Bangor 
High school, was formally presented 
to the school by Professor Wilmot B. 
Mitchell, who then addressed the as- 
sembly of students on "Wanted - Men 
of Power". The Abraxas Cup is an 
award made annually by the Student 
Council to the school whose three or 
more graduates in the freshman class 
of Bowdoin make the highest grades 
during the first semester. Bangor 
High school's students who won the 
cup for the school are: M. Chandler 
Redman, Raymond F. Prince, and Eu- 
gene E. Brown. 

In his adress on "Wanted - Men of 
Power" Professor Mitchell explained 
the need for that type of man and 
stated the qualities that qualify a 
"man of power'*. These were, first, 
gain the power of self control; second, 
hard work; third, possession of a 
definite purpose. These qualities were 
analyzed and several examples of 
"men of power" were pointed out by 
the speaker. Roosevelt's aim was 
shown in an interview with one of his 
professors before graduating from 
Harvard College in which he ex- 
pressed the desire to slap the man 
who took an indifferent attitude to- 
ward his work in the world after

participate in other activities. 

More students were found to be 
engaged as clerks in stores than any

workers would do with their extra 
time if they did not have to pay their 
own way, the largest number replied 
that they would go in for athletics. 
The next largest group declared that 
they would study more, while extra- 
curricular activities, reading, social 
life and recreation would claim the 
time of others.

Spring football practice will not be

the state of Pennsylvania, the ques-

a varsity player does not turn out, his 
chances for making the first team in 
the fall will not be materially af- 
fected. In no case will the practice in- 
terfere with regular spring sports.

Tuberculosis Bacteria 

A very thorough research work on 
the tuberculosis bacteria was started 
by Mr. Charles White of Washington, 
the chairman of the National Tuber- 
culosis Association. The difficulty was 
to get enough material to work with 
so that the chemists could make an 
analysis. A commercial firm was set 
to work to produce this material. 

There are four forms of tuber- 
culosis and eighteen strains of which 
all are not dangerous. The research 
work has been done on four of the 
strains. The four types of tubercu- 
losis are: Timothy grass tuberculosis, 
nonpathogenic; tuberculosis found in 
birds; tuberculosis found in bo vines; 
and tuberculosis found in humans. 

Glass and materials for ten years 
work was bought and the research 
was started. The germs which were 
furnished by the commercial company 
were received in lots of twenty to 
thirty pounds. The culture was im- 
mediately separated from the media 
and sent to Dr. Anderson at Yale, fat 
analyser. The tubercular bacteria are 
the only ones having fats. The media 
were sent to Chicago also to be an- 
alysed. After the bacteria were set in 
alcohol, having been analysed for fats, 
and after the soluble material had been 
removed by the alcohol, the bacteria 
were sent to be analysed for proteins 
and polysaccharides. The part of the 
research in which Dr. Sabin was em- 
ployed was to find out what each part 
of the bacteria does in the disease.

the germ are polysaccharides and 
lymphoids. The cells can destroy the 
former fairly easily. It was found 
that with a rise of monide cells there 
was a rise in appearance of lesions, 
whereas with a decrease of lympha- 
cides there was a decrease in resist- 
ance. This gave two means of 
checking up on the development of 
the disease. 

The object of the work is to find out 
all the positive and all the negative 
factors possible and next to find out 
ways, not one, but many, to work 
against development of the factors 
which cause the disease. 

Fitness A Factor In 

Evolution— Dr. Conklin 

"Something other than mere chance 
and accident permeates the entire uni- 
verse," says Dr. Edwin G. Conklin, 
professor of Zoology at Princetpn Uni- 
versity. The greatest problem of life 
and evolution — fitness — can be ex- 
plained by the elimination of the unfit, 
according to Dr. Conklin. 

In introducing the 1 subject. Dr. Conk- 
lin remarked that the method of sci- 
ence is largely that of analysis and 
specialization. But in the process of 
analysis the distinctive properties dis- 
appear. Analyse man and the person- 
ality is gone. It is necessary to^com- 
bine synthesis with analysis in order 
"to see life and see it whole". "Let 
us take the long and broad and syn- 
thetic view of the living world." 

"Adaptability is a universal char- 
acteristic of life: adaptations are spe- 
cific adjustments to meet particular 
conditions. Upon these the continu- 
ance Sf life depends. All death is due 
to their failure. There are no aims in 
inorganic nature, no useful ends are 
sought by atoms, or molecules, sands, 
or stars; continuity of life is the great 
end in organic nature. There are no 
values recognizable in the former; sur- 
vival is the greatest value in the lat- 
ter. There is neither rood nor evil in 
the lifeless world; satisfaction is the 
greatest (rood, extinction the greatest 
evil in the living world. The moment 
we pass from the inorganic to the or- 
ganic we enter a world of ends and 
values. Fitness is seen in almost every 
structure, function, and relation of or- 
ganisms. And yet fitness is never per- 
fect and sooner or later it fails with 
resulting death and extinction. 
Animal Adaptation 

"All adaptations may be classified 
as inherited or acquired. Nothing in 

the world is more wonderful than the 
ability of animals and plants to cope 
with adverse conditions which neither 
they nor their ancestors have ever be- 
fore experienced. 

"How can such fitness be explained ? 
Before Darwin it was supposed that 
they were supematurally created. 
Few, if any. scientists now maintain 
the supernatural creation of species or j 
of adaptions. Nevertheless I still 
think there is good reason to believe | 
that there is a mind or purpose of 
teleology throughout the universe. An- 
other explanation is that there is 
something like intelligence and will in 
all organisms, and that they make use- 
ful responses the same wav we do. 
With 'vital principles or forces' that no 
one can define I have no sympathy, 
BTnXwith the idea that all living things 
have the psychic elements of sensitiv- 
ity, tropisms, organic memory and 
ability to make useful responses 
through trial and error, I have great 
sympathy. Indeed these can be dem- 
onstrated in practically all organisms. 

Mechanistic Evolution 

"A third explanation of fitness is 
found in Mechanistic Evolution. With 
crude mechanism which finds every- 
thing the result of chance or accidents 
I have no more sympathy than with 
transcendental vitalism. Those who 
say there are no ends, values or pur- 
poses in the world may understand 
atoms and molecules, but they do not 
understand organisms. But given 
protoplasm with its properties of sen- 
sitivity, tropisms, organic memory, 
seeking of satisfaction, all living 
things, including man, can evolve and 
achieve fitness mechanistically. 

"The two great systems of biological 
philosophy, Lamarckism and Darwin- 
ism, are mechanistic or causal expla- 
nations of fitness. Classical Darwin- 
ism cannot explain the origin of in- 
dividually acquired adaptations. There 
is no elimination of unfit persons, since 
these useful responses to unfavorable 
conditions occur in one and the same 
person, as in gradually acquired tol- 
erance to poisons, immunitv from bac- 
terial toxines, regeneration of lost 
parts. But in all of these cases there 
is elimination of unfit reactions. 

Elimination of the Unfit 

"Thus the problem of fitness, which 
is in every way the greatest problem 
of life and evolution, can be explained 
by the elimination of the unfit. But 
while the environment is the elimina- 
tor of unfit persons, the organism it- 1 
self is the eliminator of unfit reactions. 
This means that organisms can differ- 
entiate between satisfactory and un- '' 
satisfactory responses. It means that j 
mechanism alone cannot explain fit- 1 
ness, but that something, which we [ 
may call psychism. is necessary. And 
further, the world is so constituted j 
that the fitness of the environment and 
the order of nature imply that some- \ 
thing other than mere chance and acci- 
dent permeates the entire universe." 



"A tentative plan under which 
freshman and sophomore students of 
the University of Utah would be or- 
ganized as a special unit to be termed 
the 'College of the University of 
Utah,', in which they would receive 
more specific preparation for upper 
division work, has been presented to 
the faculty for its consideration," Dr. 
Frederick J. Pack, head of the de- 
partment of geology and chairman of 
the president's committee which drew 
up the plan, stated in outlining the 
proposed split-up of the classes of the 
University of Utah. 

Dr. Pack presented an allegorical 
illustration in explaining the new 
arrangement. "A great many of the 
students entering the University of 
Utah on the 'train of education' do 
not know where they are going or into 
which field the train is leading. The 
machinery of the University does not 
give them particular help in solving 
this vital problem, and so our sugges- 
tion is that a special underclass col- 
lege be maintained, which will in- 
clude advisors of underclassmen to 
assist in preparing them for the field 
in which they are best suited. 

"At the present time, group re- 
quirements are not adequately filled 
in the freshman and sophomore years. 
The new plan will obviate this serious 
predicament. If the student, after the 
conclusion of his first two years' 
work, finds that he cannot go on to 
more advanced fields of learning un- 
der the committee's plan his journey 
on the education train during the two 
years will provide a well-balanced 
education before he gets off." 


Two innovations in basketball rules 
were tried out by the K.U. champion- 
ship team against the freshman team 
here recently. For one thing, the 
baskets were elevated to a height of 
12 feet instead of the customary 10, 
and for another, all players except 
the centers were kept back ten feet 
from the center of the floor while the 
ball was being put into play. 

These two changes are among sug- 
gested changes in rules to •come be- 
fore the Rules Committee in New 
York soon, and Dr. F. C. Allen, of 
the University coaching faculty, 
wanted an actual demonstration of 
the game under the proposed changes. 

As was anticinated, the close-up 
tip-in shots were largely absent, and 
there were more attempts to score 
from a distance on the floor. 

The freshmen won, 32 to 31. 

Modern woman excels the male 
when it comes to oratory, claims Jean 
Campbell Macmillan, public speaking 
instructor with the University of Cal- 
ifornia Extension Division.

on the next pitch. The little flurry 
terminated here, however, for Hed- 
derick lifted a high foul that Dwyer 
{fathered in and then Shute knocked 
down Millett's drive through the box 
for a put out at first 

The Polar Bears solved Millett's 
slants in the third. Dwyer led off 
with a single. MeKown followed by 
popping a hit over Berry's head into 
right field. George Bennett also hit 
and two tallies were chalked up on 
the score board for the White. 
MeKown Doubles 

Again in the fifth, the visiting nine 
raised ructions. Sonny was again the 
instigator, this time slashing out a 
peach of a base knock into right. 
Clean up man, MeKown, followed with 
a long fly which traveled to the fence 
in left field. A ground rule, however, 
prevented him from going past sec- 
ond and Dwyer from scoring. Herbie 
Rose reached first on fielder's choice 
which found everyone safe and Dwyer 
tallying. A bingle by King Crimmins 
completed the damage by sending Me- 
Kown home for the sixth run of the 

The Polar Bears collected a hit m 
both the sixth and seventh but noth- 
ing resulted from them. In the last 
half of the proverbial lucky seventh, 
the Garnet appeared slightly ominous. 
Hedderick scratched a hit and Millett 
smashed a clean one into left. With 
the head of the list coming up, the 
Bates rooters tried hard to rattle 
Shute. But nonchalantly Ben shifted 
the ball from one side to the other 
and the next three men went down in 
quick succession. 

The Houser coached nine picked up 
its last run in the ninth when Dwyer, 
as usual, led off with a hit. MeKown 
bunted him to second. Rose took { 
first on another fielder's choice that | 
found everyone safe. Bennett, 
pounded out a long fly that Ray Mc- 
Clusky only garnered after a long 
run. This clout was the means of 
Dwyer's sneaking across the rubber 
with the final run for the White. 
Bates Tallies 

Kennison, first man to face 
Shute in the last half of the ninth 
grounded to Parmenter. The latter 
tossed to Crimmins for what ap- 
peared to be an easy out. However 
old man Sol had to be taken into con- 
sideration, for he bothered King so 
much that the ball went past him un- 
touched, Kennison taking second. Af- 
ter two men had died, Toomey came 
through with a single that sent the 
runner scurrying across the plate j 
with the counter that saved the Bob- 
cats from a shut out. 


Standard Red Cross Methods Studied 
in Theory and Practice 

Next Monday Coach Bob Miller 
will start a special class in the 
standard Red Cross first aid course. 
This course is the continuance of the 
one given two years ago. The course 
is to be given under the auspices of 
the Central Maine Light and Power 
Company, which furnishes the books 
and the necessary equipment for the 

Miller stated that if a limited num- 
ber of students wished to do so they 
could with no charges. The classes 
will be held on Monday, Wednesday 
and Friday evenings. The theory and 
practice of first aid will be taught 
The course will consist of six classes 
of two and a half hours apiece. When 
the course is completed, there will be 
a total of fifteen hours used. At the 
end of the work an examination will 
be given. All who pass this with a 
sufficient grade will be awarded one 
of the Red Cross certificates. 

Flood of Letters Swamp Contest Judges 

•flORE than 1,000.000 letters were received by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco 
*** Company at Winston-Salem, N. C. in the contest for $50,000 cash 
prizes in connection with the new cellophane wrapping for Camr' 
cigarette packages. The photograph shows one mountain containing 
more than 500.000 unopened letters as they were delivered to the judges. 
Several weeks will be required to read letters and select winners. 


Team Draws Pole in Dis- 
tance College Medley 

Jack Magee will soon be leaving 
Brunswick with eight or ten chosen 
trackmen, bound for Philadelphia and 
the University of Pennsylvania relay 
races on Friday and Saturday. These 
games, comprising a total of one hun- 
dred events, are regarded as the major 
outdoor track event of the year in the 
East. The Polar Bear outfit, crippled 
by ineligibilities, will have to outdo it- 
self) to retain the laurels won last year. 

The outcome of the draw for posi- 
tions was announced last week. Bow- 
doin drew the pole in the distance col- 
lege medley relay, and will run 
against Columbia, Shippensburg, Chi- 
cago, Indiana, Princeton, Harvard, 
Penn State, New York, Army, and 
Pennsylvania in that order. In the 
sprint college medley relay draw, 
Bowdoin got fourth place from the 

The draw in the mile relay gave the 
Magee team number eight position in 
their division. In this race Bowdoin 
will run against Hampton, Catholic, 
Michiean Normal, St. John's (Brook- 
lyn), Stevens Tech, and Long Island. 

Half-mile Lee Undecided 

Bowdoin's team for the distance 
medley will have Dan Johnson and 
Milt Hickok each doine a 220-yard leg, 
Gordon! Briggs running a quarter-mile, 
and George Sewall, Steve Lavender, or 
Larry Usher finishing up with an 880- 
yard stretch. The choice of anchor 
man depends on the outcome of the 
time trials of Saturday and yesterday, 
but Coach Magee has a hair-splitting 
selection to make, for all three are 
great fighters. 

Charlie Stanwood. Harry Thistle- 
waite. Milt) Hickok, and Gordon Briggs 
will defend Bowdoin's mile relay 
crown in division three. Their chances 
are problematical, as little is known 
about the seven other teams in the di- 
vision. Judging from recent workouts, 
however, there will be no occasion for 
apoloiries on their part. 

Del Galbraith will uphold the Polar 
Bear prestige with the 16-pound ham- 
mer, and is expected to compare favor- 
ably with' the field. Johnson and Hic- 
kok are entered in the special 100-yard 
dash, and Stanwood and Ray Mc- 
Laughlin in the 120 yard high hurdles. 
It is possible that Ray Olson will com- 
pete with the discus and the javelin. 

Gordon Briggs nearly missed out 
on the Penn Relays trip on account of 
a leg injury he suffered durinjr the 
freshman - sophomore horseplay last 
week. Thus Jack Magee ordered his 
trackmen to keep out of the mob 
struggles and his edict was closely fol 
lowed by that of the Dean.

ter two were always dependable in the 
medley relay. Bowman has made 
great improvement since a year ago, 
and Sperry's smashing finishes fea- 
tured the meets all last winter. Cap- 
tain Smith was a consistent point- 
scorer in the dashes, and anchored the 

The New England Intercollegiate 
Championship meet at Wesleyan saw 
Art Sperry and Captain-elect Dens- 
more shining for the Polar Bears. 
Sperry twice lowered the record in the 
medley swim, and his teammate won 
second place in«the breaststroke. 

The final event of the swimming 
season will be a dual meet between 
the Bowdoin freshmen and the Au- 
burn Y. M. C. A. natators on Saturday 
evening, with the visiting sub-fresh- 
men as special guests. No admission 
fee will be charged.

Alpha Tan Omega and Chi Psi Seem 

to Have Retained Much of Last 

Year's Strength 

Ed Merrill, manager of Intramural 
athletics has announced the pairings 
for the first round of the Interfra- 
ternity baseball League. The first 
game will take place next Wednes- 
day but at the same time of writing 
it has not been announced as to whom 
the competing teams are to be. The 
first round drawings are as follows: 
Alpha Tau Omega vs Zeta Psi, Psi 
Upsilon vs Theta Delta Chi, Alpha 
Delta Phi vs Chi Psi, Delta Kappa 
Epsilon vs Sigma Nu, Kappa Sigma 
vs Beta Theta Pi and Non Fraternity 
vs Delta Upsilon. 

Alpha Tau Omega and Chi Psi 
houses, the finalists of last year, are 
favorites again this spring. Each of 
these teams lost but a single man by 
graduation. The A. T. O.'s, the win- 
ners, are the harder hit of the two 
through the loss of Warner Witherell, 
pitching ace of past years. The Chi 
Psi's will miss the services of "Kit" 
Dyer who held down the shortstop 
berth in previous years. John Bar- 
bour and "Bill" Copeland are ex- 
pected to bear the brunt of the mound 

Sportsman's Pen 

The chapel bell's melody Monday 
evening sang out the first good news 
of the new sport season, a lop-sided 
victory in baseball. The skeptics will 
point out a dozen weaknesses in the 
Bates club, but 7-1 is a walkover in 
any league. 

t t t 

Sid MeKown still packs the might- 
iest clout of the Bowdoin batters. 
The galloping third-sacker stepped 
into a deceptive slow one served up 
by Millett, Garnet freshman, and it 
dropped among the bushes for the 
only extra base hit of the afternoon. 
Sid's home run in the Harvard game 
travelled farther than that of Ben 
Ticknor, and incidentally kept the 
Bear from being Whitewashed, 
t t t 

Ben Shute did a very satisfactory 
job at Lewiston, as he did the week 
before at Cambridge. He appears now 
to be the sole dependable on the 
pitching staff, but Lloyd Morrell has 
forsaken the javelin for a while, and 
is expected to be in shape very soon. 

t t t . 
When Sid Foster was lost >to the 
track team, Coach Jack Magee sug- 
gested that rather than electing a new 
captain, a leader be appointed pre- 
vious to each meet for the rest of the 
season. In this way Foster would be 
officially recorded as captain of this 
year's team, and the boys were unan- 
imous in granting Sid the tribute. 

t t t . 
Another proposition that got whole- 
hearted accord from the team was the 
principle of electing in future years 
the most capable leader available, re- 
gardless of his class in college. The 
move tends to break a tradition which 
has long been out of date. It will no 
longer be necessary to reserve the 
distinction of a captaincy to only one 
man from each class, as when only 
seniors are eligible. 

* ... t t t 

A striking example of this policy 
is the recent choice of Frank H. Ab- 
bott '34, from Waterboro, to lead the 
tennis team this season. This is prob- 
ably the first time a humble freshman 
ever captained a varsity athletic team 
at Bowdoin. 

t t t 
Jack Magee relates that he saw the 
original Boston A. A. marathon run 
when he was still in short pants. Last 
Monday Jack witnessed the race from 
the exalted position of official timer, 
as he has done for some years now. 
Another well-known distance classic 
for which Jack has done much is the 
Cathedral A. C. 10-mile run, or- 
ganized by him many years ago. 

„' v> t t t 

Ted Densmore is a very popular 
choice as swimming captain; he has 
all the qualifications of a real leader. 
Besides being worth five points al- 
most infallibly in his favorite event, 
he is a hard worker and a true sports- 

The track managers pulled a boner 
during the time trials last Saturday. 
Hickok and Briggs were clocked in 
amazing time for 150 yards, when Sid 
Foster observed that the course 
marked out was about eight yards 
short of the distance. 

The freshmen are going to have 
their first outdoor meet May Z, Bridg- 
ton will come to Brunswick and the 
'34 aggregation will suffer little there- 
fore on account of the ineligibility of 
Ambler, Gray, Wait, and the others. 




Potential Power Expected 

in Coach Brice's Staff 

of Pitchers 

While the Polar Bears have met 
both Harvard and Bates on the dia- 
mond, Coach Fred Brice's University 
of Maine nine did not get into action 
until yesterday when they opposed the 
Colby Mule at Orono. The U. of M. 
team that last year captured the title 
has been hit hard this spring by eligi- 
bility rules. Still in spite of the 
scholarship jinx, Coach Brice feeb 
that his 1931 edition of players has as 
much potential power and punch as 
the successful nine of last year. 

There are two veterans in the in- 
field, McAbe at third and Smith at 
first base. The other two, Lewis at 
second and Halgren at short, are new- 
comers who have been showing up 
well during the early training. The 
hurling staff appears particularly 
strong with three veterans back, Per- 
kins, Solander and Nutting. There are 
also three others who have been buzz- 
ing them across with plenty speed and 
control. They are Romansky, star of 
last year's freshman team, Churchill 
and Spurting. Captain "Bill" Wells 
appears to have the call over Sezak 
and Abbott in the catching depart- 
ment. The outfield remains uncertain 
with "Blondy" Hincks the only sure 
starter. The other ball-hawks are 
Kirzonack, Hall, Frost, Wight and 

To Play at Brunswick Friday 

The Bowdoin game next Friday 
will conclude a series of five games, 
played on five consecutive days by 
the Orono boys. Commencing on Mon- 
day they meet Colby, Rhode Island 
State at Kingston, Connecticut Aggies 
at Storr. Northeastern at Boston and 
Bowdoin at Brunswick. This stiff 
schedule calls for a great strain on 
the pitchers and will be a real test 
of their ability. 

The game at Brunswick will be one 
of the features of sub-freshman week 
end and should draw a large audience. 
Ben Houser's boys will undoubtedly 
face Maine with the same lineup that 
played Harvard. That means Dwyer 
catch, Crimmins first, Parmenter sec- 
ond, Whittier short, MeKown third, 
Bennett left field, Ricker center field, 
and Rose right field. The pitchers 
will be chosen from among Norm 
Brown, Ben Shute and George South- 

The day after the Maine game, the 
White journeys to Waterville where 
they will attempt to make Colby their 
victim. Little is known about the 
strength of Roundy's aggregation ex- 
cept that they have had but little 
chance to work out on the diamond 
because of the damp condition of the 
field. A true line on their ability will 
come out of their contest with Maine 

A field trip, calling for more than 
2,000 miles of travel to the most in- 
teresting biological regions of West 
Virginia, will be taken this summer by 
the "roaming scientists" of West Vir- 
ginia Universitv, consisting of stu- 
dents interested in biology and zo- 

1,200 students of Missouri Uni- 
versity participated recently in an 
All-Sports Night. 

Establishing an entirely new event 
on the Yale Calendar, prominent lead- 
ers of the Yale Class of 1934 have 
announced that plans have been com- 
pleted for a Freshman Dance. 

Jack Magee spoke last week be- 
fore the Damariscotta Rotary Club on 
the subject "College Football Training 
and College Athletics". The meeting 
was well attended, the speaker having 
won last fall a substantial reputation 
as a football trainer. After outlining 
the various major and minor sports 
that enter the realm of physical edu- 
cation at college, Coach Magee de- 
scribed the routine through which a 
college eleven goes in preparation for 
a strenuous campaign. 

A reward of $25 for the arrest and 
conviction of the author or authors of 
"With Fire and Sword", a campus 
scandal sheet recently distributed at 
the University of Nebraska was of- 
fered by The Daily Nebraskan.

It's s Fin* Thins 

When yea com* right down to it, 
of coarse it hi! Who could doubt it? 
Bat while we're on the subject, we 
should Use to view with scorn our 
foolish contemporary, the Orient. 
for the pent year, oar rival publica- 
tion has done absolutely nothing: but 
try hard la ha radical. Perhaps now 
that they've kicked the editor (so- 
called) esT the Beard they can settle 
down aad ha a food newspaper like 
the Lewises* Journal or tha Bewdoin 
OCCIDENT (of coarse, we don't want 
la appear boootfuJ). 

The main charge against the 
Orient Is that they think that Bow- 
dein shoald become a modern college. 
Of all the lossy, tripe ideas! As if 
they ossld over move the tradition 
(aad tha dast!) of a century of Bow- 
dote! FaoHsh! The founders of this 
college were "— -ng the most far- 
sighted, advanced men of their day. 
Why does the Orient thiak they are 
net today ? Impudent, radkaL bol- 
shevik .pasties! Wky should the 
Orient have ideas about whether or

Of coarse, there ia ao each thing as

choice literature as the tetter which 
Dean Nixon is reading at the pres- 
ent timaf It is all bound up in our 
tradition. Twenty Orienta can not 
ssore it like the Chinese, we 
wiH stand by our ancestors. What 
won good enough for them and what 
was moral for them should be for us. 
There need be no further argument. 
The fact that the world outside Bow- 
date, the fact that store and mot; 
colleges are taking out the word 
"compaleory* from their chapel 
rales or are radnclag the number of 
to one or two a 

week need not, nor should not, affect 
conditions here at Bowdoin. And to 
insure the minimum amount of sleep 
for each and every student and the 
maximum amount of discomfort, of 
course we shall have our chapel serv- 
ices at the unearthly hour of eight- 
twenty! This snivelling Orient makes 
u« sick. Those editors must be a 
race of weaklings. It is glorious to 
jump out of bed so fresh and early 
on a cold winter's morning after be- 
ing up half the night studying for an 
Hour-Exam and go devoutly to pray- 
ers to start the day right. And such 
prayers! And after all, we must 
watch our morals, especially so early 
in the morning. 

But all this is not what we started 
out to say. O my no! But now that 
we're this far down the column, we 
do not choose to run on any further. 


To the Editor of the OCCIDENT 
Dear Sir: 

Little or no greetings! 

In venturing to write this letter to 
you, I fully realize that by so doing 
I may lay myself open to scathing 
criticism from certain sides. I trust 
that you yourself will at least be fair- 
minded enough to print this in one of 
your columns. 

My son, Emmanuel, who is attend- 
ing Bowdoin, writes me of a very pe- 
culiar letter that has been read in part 
in chapel lately by one of the fac- 
ulty of your college. From what 
scraps he writes me (interspersed in 
between his demands for money, fur- 
coats, Baby Austins and whatnot), I 
have received a rather unfavorable, or 
rather unsavory, impression of the 
whole college. To my mind, chapel id 
a poor place for such a letter. I do 
not care whether your services are 
religious or not. They were mainly 
farces every time I have visited your 
institution in the past six years while 
Emmanuel has been at Bowdoin, but 
even so, the building itself should 
have some sanctity. I am not a rig- 
orous churchman; in fact, I seldom go 
to my own church, but I do feel, and 
very strongly too if I may say so, 
that any letter such as this one, which 
fairly reeks of the worst sort of ideal- 
ism and which is sordid in the ex- 
treme, is NOT FIT for reading in any 
chapel service. Emmanuel tells me of 
agitation by some young radicals for 
the abolition of chapel. I can't say 
that I am unconditionally in favor of 
such a step, but I should like to say 
here and now that that letter, with its 
vulgar references to women, to cite 
but one example, is to my mind one 
of the biggest arguments that could 
be advanced for the abolition of all 
chapel exercises. 

Trusting that you will be able to 
find room for this letter in one of 
your columns, I am 

Sincerely yoqrs, 


say, are not inconsistent with the 
rights of others. How do you recon- 
cile your statements? 

I have just tasted of this bottle of 
liquor, I will confide to vou, and I can- 
not see where or how I am invading 
the rights of any other person on 
earth. I find it excellent. It warms 
my stomach; it inspires my thought. I 
cannot feel, Mr. Editor, that I have 
wronged the community or added to 
the lawlessness of the general society 
in so doing. It mokes rne tired to be 
classed as a criminal for any such oc- 
casion, and I notify you that before 
long there will be a revolt against the 
sort of stuff that you are writing. 

Just to show my independence of 
such truck as you are writing, I have 
taken another drink of the aforesaid 
most jubilant Sandy MacDonald, and I 
will say to you that it is about as 
smooth a drink as a criminal ever put 
into his system. The second drink, 
which I shall soon follow by a third, 
makes me more certain that those 
who feel their systems require stimu- 
lant, should band together, organize, 
and start a campaign to floor this Vol- 
stead business, if it can be done. 

Now, Mr. Editor, I am no bum and 
vou can't make me a bum, I like a 
little drink now and then and I have 
taken a third or maybe it is a fourth 
and I am more than ever conviucew 
that any m an that doesn't is a big 
idiot. You say that this evabion of the 
law is producing a sta6e of affairs in 
our Grear nand Glorious Country. You 
are wronh. This ciuntry is jess as 
good as it ever was and was a great 
deal better and I will leabe it to you 
f iit wasn8t, when we had free rum. 

I wan8t to say to you that Socitch 
is all right. A lot of it wouldn't do us 
harm. When we ened stimulany we 
need it. My grandafyer was brougr 
up on rum. They had it in the housb 
all the time. They dranj it freely and 
even the minstew drank it when he 
came to our housa. It8s a pretty kinf 
of a cointrv when a garndson is better 
than his fundfaher. I can drink this 
sort of Scutes: all day And not be no 
worse a citoxen that I was befote. I 
could drink this whole quaet audd 
neger quiber an etelash.

Dear Mr. Editor: 

* You seem to take a great deal of de- 
light in telling our people how to live 
and perhaps that is your business, but 
it seems to me that you exceed your 
duty when you arrogate to yourself 
the right to inform all of those who 
may happen to enjoy an occasional 
drink of "Scotch" on occasions. 

I have been presented a fine bottle 
of Scotch whiskey for Christmas and 
it is before me as I sit at my type- 
writer and indite this letter to you. It 
bears the label of Sandy MacDonald — 
a good, fair, well-bodied liquor which I 
am assured was bought before the war 
and has been in my friend's cellar ever 
since. What right has any form of 
Law to make me a criminal if I par- 
take of this gift as it was intended 
that I do by the giver? 

I claim that anv such law is an inva- 
sion of my personal liberty. I notice 
that vou have referred often in your 
excellent column to the so-called Bill 
of Rights which secures to all men and 
women certain inalienable rights to 
their personal liberty, which, as you

Edwards Claims 

The Rooting Reporter 

Every other day, the Inquiring Re- 
porter propounds to five prominent 
men a question dealing with current 
facts and problems. Today's question 
was given to five prominent members 
of the Bowdoin College faculty whose 
answers are printed herewith. 

Question: What use do you propose 
to make of your bonus money? 
President Kenneth C. M. Sills: "I shall 
devote the entire amount to the 
preparation and promulgation of 
literature advocating the abolition 
of Compulsory Chapel here at Bow- 
doin. It is a cause to which I be- 
lieve every member of the college 
should contribute who is interested 
in the welfare of our institution." 
Professor Wilmot B. Mitchell: "I 
presume to utilize my bonus in the 
following way. I shall devote all 
of it to the founding of an endowed 
chair in Rhetoric. I feef very 
keenly the disadvantage men grad- 
uating from Bowdoin have when 
they find themselves called upon to 
speak in later life. To my mind, 
the only solution will be extending 
English 4 to a year course (to be 
known as English 3-4) and of reno- 
vating courses 1-2, 6-6, 7-8, and 
9-10 so that they will deal with 
nothing but the art of declamation. 
These five courses I should make 
requirements — all five to be taken 
each year for the entire four to 
seven years of a man's undergradu- 
ate career. Only thus, will Bowdoin 
men be freed from that embarrass- 
ment sure to come when they are 
out in the world and are asked to 
speak. I know, alas, only too well 
what it means on such an occasion 
to be able to say nothing but 
"Imagine a line of federal forts". 
Under my new plan, a Bowdoin 
graduate will at least know two ad- 
ditional pieces by heart" 
Professor Marshall P.* Cram: "I in- 
tend to spend my bonus on some 
more statuary for my back-yard. 
Charlie Cram looks lonesome." 
Mr. Gerald G. Wilder: "I shall use 
my bonus in making additions to 
the periodicals now available in the 
Library. I have made a survey of 
the field during the past two years, 
and my mind is fully made up as 
to what periodicals to add. This 
number will certainly include the 
following, although this is by no 
means to be considered a complete 
list: French Models, Snappy Sto- 
ries, True Confessions, Smokehouse 
Monthly, Love Stories, Breezy Sto» 
ries and The Growler". 
Dean Paul Nixon: "I propose to estab- 
lish a sizable scholarship for some 
undistinguished undergraduate who 
-can sit through an entire year of 
Saturday chapels. Men on probation 
will not be eligible". 

The Old Oil 







Strong men cried; weak men 
wavered; inebriates fainted. The oth- 
er ten per cent rushed for the door. 
Out of the banquet hall of the Hotel 
Eagle, Concord, N. H., rushed one 
hundred and nine men and boys. Hub- 
bard looked at Drake and both. un- 
ashamedly wiped tears from their 
eyes. The officers of the Class of 1934 
were also in tears; Carl Weber with a 
handkerchief to his eyes surveyed the 

Scene at Frosh Banquet 

hall in dismay. Ahead of the crowd 
pouring out into the lobby a handful 
held on to a handcuffed member of 
the two threes class, the great Maw- 
hinney, of Portland Press fame. Out 
into the street swept the crowd with 
panic and menace written on their 
flushed and tearful faces. 

Chiefie Prevents Justice 

Someone stopped long enough to 
stop Calkin from travelling all night 
in the revolving door at the entrance 
and shoved the prisoner out onto the 
sidewalk. Two burly bulla ambled up 
to see there was no murder and the 
crowd gathered fast. The freshmen 
were eager for justice. (Justice to a 
'34 means: Paddles, watering trough, 
no pants, and a ride ) . Mawhinney . the 
master criminal and the more masterly 
chemist, was told to "assume the an- 
gle", told with high giee. The fourth 
to lay his hands on the paddle, which 
had appeared mysteriously when 
"cleaned and pressed" Sperry gave a 
rendition and ate peanut butter to 
liven up the first courses of the dinner, 
was Dick Nelson. Suddenly he found 
his paddle gone and himself backed up 
against the wall by a wrathful chief of 
police. Chiefie having forgotten to 
hand out his card was not recognized 
by the erring Mr. Nelson who was 
quickly reminded. The siren blowing 
down the street announced a police car 
and amid cheers for the Concord 
burlies and deprecations cast at the 
popular hero, Mawhinney left to get 
acquainted with Concord. 

Banquet and Bar 

It was a little after seven that the 
bar in Room 96 closed down and the 
banquet in the hall started. A tele- 
gram was received at the head table, 
who were all pretty snooty in their 
soup and fish, in which Herbie Wads- 
worth sent his regrets at being unable 
to be present. The rumor went around 
that the sophomores, those great 
sharp-shooters of eggs, were driving 
around. Sperry. was invited in to a 
meal of peanut butter sandwich. The 
charming waitresses, and the hotel 
certainly played safe there, were full 
of sympathy for Bob who sang "When 
your hair has turned to silver." That 
was not half so popular as "Dancing 
with tears in my eyes" turned out to 
be when the freshmen grew senti- 

Dick couldn't wait for the boys to 
have their coffee and plopped three 
little surprise presents for the boys 
onto the floor. We hear that Krause, 
Dick's little helpmate at the labora- 
tory, was ostracized by the invaders 
on the way down to the fracas. Even 
tear-bomb and stink-bomb makers suf- 
fer for good causes. 

Our night editor was slightly plas- 
tered at the time, so the rest of the 
story, telegraphed from the police sta- 
tion by our reporter (who was also 

slightly plastered), seems to be a bit 
garbled. Mawhinney was escorted to 
the jug by a large cordon of Concord 
cops; perhaps it could be a trifle more 
accurate to say a cordon of large Con- 
cord cops, for there were three of 
them. In an Austin. 

In the same party came Vice-Presi- 
dent Milliken, Beebe and Krause, all 
panting and pantless. "Indecent ex- 
posure, y'r honor", simpered the 
Sarge, as he laid the prisoners on the 
judge's desk. 

"Call a tailor," cried that worthy, 
and without wasting any words a 
tailor was called. "Measure these fel- 
lows," (you can see just what the 
judge thought of those Sophs when he 
called them "fellows"). "Construct 'em 
pairs of heavy trousis", mandated the 

"Rubber"? joshed the needles-and- 
pins laddie as he wrapped the tape 
around Milliken's neck and strangled 
him with a deft twist of the wrist. 
Mobs Maul Marauders 

But the story preceded itself. A 
black, sinister-looking vehicle drooled 
out of a side street and stopped in the 
middle of the main street. Four ruf- 
fians, hatted, coated and armed to the 
ears, stepped out, aided by several 
hundred enthusiastic banqueteers. 
Amidst cries of "Lynch 'em"! and 
"Throw 'em to the spectators"! the 
four unknown were dragged mercilessly 
to the arena in front of the luxurious 
hostelry. Colby, who piloted the black. 
sinister-looking vehicle, pedalled off in 

Gently but firmly were the gunmen 
divested of their excess pants. Then 
with a graceful gesture, Milliken, 
Beebe and Krause (for so it turned out 
they were) had their wrists securely 
anchored to trees with handcuffs. Or 
to a tree with a handcuff. We never 
DID get that straight. 

Indians from upper Main street hur- 
riedly brought piles of brushwood, and 
had it not been for the gallant police, 
the class of "33 would have lost several 
well-nigh worthy members. 
The Show Goes On 

Guns levelled, the Freshmen re- 
treated back into the reeking hotel, 
where those who were unfortunately 
sober prepared to listen to speeches. 
Speakers, unfortunately sober, pre- 
pared to clear their throats to prepare 
to speak. There was n dead silence, 
save for the sliarht scrape of somebodv 
crawling out of the room on his hands 
and knees. 

President Weber arose, and in a 
tremulous voice thanked the bovs for 
th«» ovation which he had expected. In 
a few well-chosen words he relegated 
♦he Sophomores to their nlace; his con- 
freres. Sumner and Ackerman. contin-

Edwards Believes Langford a Fiend 
of Some Sort 

Brunswick, Me. (who, you? Yes, 
Me!) — A poorly suppressed brawl 
broke out yesterday in the faculty 
meeting when it is alleged two mem- 
bers were caught stuffing the ballot 
box. Wildest excitement followed, 
ten professors receiving severe 
scratches around the ears, while sev- 
eral others are suffering from loss of 

Chief Billy (Old Faithless) Ed- 
wards was immediately called in, 
along with several students who acted 
as deputies. Prof. Thomas Means, 
twitching his moustache feverishly, 
declined to give the following state- 
ment to the press (and well he might, 

"Tilings were drooling along in 
great shape, and we had flunked out 
nearly half the college. Plans were 
progressing to rid ourselves of the 
other three hundred students (this, 
by the way, coming as the initial move 
in a gigantic re-organization plan, 
coupled with the Maine State Survey, 
of flunking all the students, so the 
faculty may have free rein) when 
suddenly the lights went out. 

"When they went on again Prea. 
Sills, who had been sitting at the head 
of the table, was gone. In his place 
sat none other than Arthur Langford, 
well known man-about-town and co- 
holder of the Bed Making record 
(established when he defeated Frank 
(Don Juan) of Appleton Hall at his 
own game). 

"Well, we all reached for a Murad, 
but inasmuch as we all reached for 
the same one, confusion arose. The 
last I remember was biting Prof. 

Barney (Jo-jo) Smith behind the left 

Chief Edwards, with his customary 
insight, could make nothing of it. Ha 
was unaccountably placed hors de 
combat when a typewriter hit him 
mysteriously athwart the gunnells; 
another unofficial report has it that 
Langford (since suspected of being a 
fiend) hurled it, in a moment inspired 
by remembrances of his own days at 
Bowdoin, when he was a hammer- 
thrower back in '00. 

Little has been done on the ease, ex- 
cept to clap four members of the 
faculty into lower Adams, which is 
being pressed into service as a tem- 
porary calaboose. (And a helluva lot 
of pressing it needs, too. Cleaning and 
pressing, we might suggest, were we 
not so fastidious).

Brooke and Ashby Do Battle 

on Side — Edwards 


Bowdoin stewdents witnessed on* 
of the . best tussles ever seen in 
Brunswick last Sunday morning when 
nine members of the faculty battled 
the local police force in a ball game 
that went into extra innings. "Polly" 
Nixon on the mound for the Peda- 
gogues was very tight throughout the 
entire encounter with only three hits 
being collected off his offerings. For 
an early season game the locals did 
not appear as bad as was expected. 
As usual "Busier" Tallenheimer was 
on the receiving end. He not only 
caught everything that was within 
reach but he collected one hit in nine 
times at the plate. 

Faculty Errs 

By the way, the score of the f racus 
was Pedagogues 81, Chief Edwards 
191. The half run came in the third 
when "Billy" tied Tallenheimer to the 
piste. Nixon pitched a swell ball 
game but many bonehead plays al- 
lowed the law enforcers to tally many 
times. Stallneck at first was the 
leading man in the field making only 
twelve miseues out of twenty-five 
chances. "Newt" also clouted out a 
home run in the second when he 
slammed the agate over Edwards', the 
short stop, head. On the whole, the 
"Pedagogues" played a good game 
displaying an especially strong offen- 

Brooke Ousted 

One of the most interesting events 
of the game was a scrap oetween 
Brooke, faculty left-fielder and um- 
pire Ashby. The fight started when 
"Laughing Waters" was called out on 
strikes in the ninth. Pugnacious Give, 
with a grim fiery look in his eyes

strode out to the mound where Ash- 
by was doing his duty. A fight 
seemed certain and a .large crowd, 
which was augmented" by a great 
many Sunday morning church-goers, 
gathered around the two youngsters. 
Ashby began to argue but the massive 
Brooke, realizing his advantage de- 
manded the arbitrator to reverse his 
decision or he would whiff him one. 
Bravely, Ashby stood firm and only 
through the efforts of six spectators 
was Clive squelched. The progress 
of the game was delayed for several 
minutes while the police team escorted 
the unruly player to the lock-up. The 
only other disturbance of the contest 
came when Chief Edwards, captain of 
the losers, accused Gross of gambol- 
ing on the infield. Little resulted 
from the squabble and the case was 

Twitchell Spouts 
In a lengthy interview with the 
press, Willnot Twitchell, manager and 
waterboy for the Pedagogues said 
that the team would play more games 
this year. Already contests have been 
arranged with The Topsham School 
for the Blind, Bates, The Orono Home 
for the Aged and Colby High School. 
As one can readily see, with the ex- 
ception of the Topsham game, this 
is not really a hard schedule. Twit- 
chell believed that the faculty ges- 
tures are causing a great deal of 
trouble and he has hopes of remedying 
them. He also criticized Umpire Ash- 
by's enunciation very severely. Fur- 
thermore, the Pedagogue water car- 
rier said that it is his own personal 
opinion that the faculty boys are not 
scientific enough in their playing. As 
soon as this natural crudeness and 
uncouthness is rid of, Twitchell feels 
that the club ought to be darn good.

Coach Announces That Nine 
is Not to be Reduced This 
Year; Statement to the 



Town Building 

Pickard Field Pent House, Me., Spe- 
cial Dispatch to the OCCIDENT 

"Although I will probably have an 
unusually large squad plastered on 
my hands this spring, there will be 
no cuts made. The team will be full 
for the Ivy Game." Thus did the 
hardy coach of the ball twirlers sum 
up the subject of reducing the size 
of the team. 

Nine men will appear on the field at 
all ' times. In the words of Captain 
Whittier: "A full team". Far be it 
from us to doubt his word, but if the 
report is true that Arthur (Up 'n At 
'em) Langford is slated for the 
pitcher's berth — we quit. 

Not only does this news come as a 
complete surprise, but we well nigh 
jumped out of our shoes when they 
told us that Herbie Hartman, for- 
merly of the Boston Red Slops, would 
supplant McKown at third. Hartman, 
and his running mate, Spike Brooke of 
the West End A. C. used to play some 
beautiful ball for the Faculty Team. 

The Bowdoin outfield is laid up for 
the present having barnacles scraped 
and crankcases drained. Unless an 
unexpected miracle turns up, Ben 
Houser says that one man will have 
to play all three positions. No names 
are mentioned, but we look to the 
Math department to get us out of the 
difficulty; too bad Prof. Bompiani 
left us — we lost a sterling center field- 
er in that lad! 

Epic Fag Rush 

Defeat Faculty in 22-Hour 
Sizzling Battle 

Brunswick, Me., April 28.— The an- 
nual fair rush between the faculty and 
the famlty took place on the Delta 
here last Thursday afternoon. The 
faculty easily won because the faculty 
could not get their forces accumulated 
before the faculty arrived there in full 
force. When the faculty rushed the 
faculty, the faculty retaliated with 
true faculty style. The hero of the 
faculty was Dojwrett, who with his 
dog-like tendencies, was fighting 
every minute for the faculty. On the 
other hand the star performer in be- 
half of the faculty was Cram who ever 
rushed hither and thither and anon. 
It it hadn't been that the faculty had 
Nixon and Sills on their side, the fac- 
ulty misrht have won the farf rushi The 
dean rushed in and grabbed a fasr for 
the faculty while Sills did likewise. 
The faculty, however, retaliated and 
Hormell of the faculty immediately 
procured three fags. In the mean- 
time the faculty had eathered their 
forces. When they returned to the 
scene of the combat, the faculty^saw 
them, and the faculty retreated. Hence 
the faculty carried the day. 

The result of the fair rush was that 
the faculty had procured a carton of 
mangled Camels. Well, they deserved 
to win the fool thinars. for they only 
cost $1.11 at the A. & P. 

School Scene of Wildest 
'thusiasm; Hammond Goes 

Thousands Crushed as Popular Young 
Prof-About-Campus Announces 
- European Tour 

Jake Hammond recently created a 
commotion among the younger set of 
the school when he revealed plans for 
an extended European tour this sum- 
mer (and next -ear it is hoped). At 
first it was thought that his ultimate 
destination would be China, but Mr. 
Hammond said (we hate to tell you) 
that he never could eat rice. 

Unfortunate as is this unexpected 
news, report has it that students are 
standing up bravely under the shock. 
The infirmary has eleven cases of 
heart failure, and two of measles. 
Nobody can see exactly how the 
measles figures in — but there you are. 
We give you all the news! 

Mr. Hammond expects to spend sev- 
eral days in Paris, where he will tarry 
a few hours at the Sorbonne to rest 
before taking up extensive studies at 
Harry's New York Bar and the Cafe 
de la Paix. When asked if he would 
study mathematics, he answered with 
that knowing smile (you've surely all 
seen it!) and said: "Mayhap." Not 
another word could we get out of him. 
He just sat there as one dead. And 
mayhap he was.

Hot Books in Spectacular 


"So That's How They Spend Their 

Time"! Gasps Edwards Amazed 

as Usual 

"First as usual" the OCCIDENT 
presents to its readers hours before its 
nearest competitors the exclusive and 
complete story of the notorious raid on 
Hubbard Hall last night. 

Brunswick, April 31. — At about ten 
o'clock tonight to the surprise of the 
blear-eyed denizens of Hubbard Hall, 
a large detachment of the first divi- 
sion of the vice s<iuad of the Bruns- 
wick Police, headed by chief "Bill" Ed- 
wards in person, stormed the library 
and destroyed numerous alleged inde- 
cent volumes. 

At the stroke of ten "Billy" and his 
gallant crew rushed through the doors 


of the library and started in pursuit of 
Gerald G. Milder, chief librarian. For 
a bibliophile Milder showed a remark- 
ably swift pair of heels but he was 
finally captured after a wild chase 
through the corridors of the library. 
Assistant Librarian Toyer surrendered 
without resistance. T. E. Lewis was 
extracted from a huge pile of news- 
papers and clippings. He showed fight 
as usual, brandishing a pair of scis- 
sors before the eyes of his attackers, 
but finally also gave in. In the Classi- 
cal Room, Professor Beans pulled his 
beret over his eyes, waved his cane 
and swore energetically in Greek but 
even this did not prevent the squad 
capturing him and carrying away 
some of his most treasured pictures. 
"School and College Bleater" Seized 

Meanwhile a large number of the 
police had forced their way into the 
reading rooms and the stacks. Here 
they revealed their erudition and lit- 
erary taste to a surprising degree, 
picking out the numerous indecent 
volumes that Librarian Milder had al- 
lowed to accumulate. Others had built 
a bonfire in front of the library and 
were preparing to burn the obnoxious 

Suddenly from a window on the up- 
per floor flew a book, and describing a 
neat parabola fell into the fire. It was 
dark except for the lurid light of the 
fire but the crowd that had gathered 
immediately identified the book as none 
other than the infamous "School and 
College Bleater". When this news was 
passed through the crowd cheers went 
up such as the library had never heard 

The front door clanged open and a 
number of heavily laden men dashed 
out. They piled huge volumes into the 
fire and the "Encyclopedia Britannica" 
was consumed by the fire. The police 
showed some more of its excellent 
judgment as amid rousing cheers 
"Who's Who", "Mother Goose", and 
the "Bowdoin Swill" bit the dust. 

Inside meanwhile the squad driven 
on by H. R. H. the Chief, were engaged 
in a frantic search for a certain vol- 
ume. D. H. Lawerence, James Joyce, 
and Freud remained on their shelves

Even the Great T. Means is Baffled 

by Enigmatic Line — Smith 


Douglas Park, April 27 
Workmen digging around Memorial 
Hall on Bowdoin College campus today 
dug up a curious stone near the middle 
of the east side of the old pile. Noting 
faint markings on one of its faces, 
Hod Litchfield, gang boss, carried the 
slab over to Professor Meserve's of- 
fice, where he waited patiently for 
four hours for the rising young geol- 
ogist. Phil arrived, unscrewed his 
powerful microscope and proceeded to 
examine. "Not gravel," he finally 
pronounced, "Not in my field". Where- 
upon he slammed down his desk-top 

Rising Young Geologist 

and bolted up to look at Cram's still. 
Litchfield then turned the stone over 
to Dean Nixon, who, with Professors 
Smith and Means and the rest of the 
Classical Club, is now attempting to 
decipher the legend. Patently, it is in 
Latin, but of so vulgar a degree that 
its riddle is yet unsolved. Evidently, 
it dates from the early Middle Ages 
and its presence here in Brunswick 
is a baffling enigma. As well as it 
can be made out, the line reads: 
"Itis Apis Potand Abigone". Profes- 
sor Smith's theory is that it represents 
the epitaph of some Medieval celebrity, 
whereas Dean Nixon and Professor 
Means concur in the belief that it is 
a wall plaque bearing the motto of 
some learned house. According to 

unperturbed. Up and down the stairs 
they ran. Thev broke in doors and

phant shout went up from their lusty 
throats. They rushed down en masse 
into the open. The Brunswick Tele-

be: "Go, thou bee, about to get drunk

to be the correct rendering of the 
line, it may open up a vast field of

ship a common practice in classical 
times? "Time will tell", Professor 
Smith is quoted as saying. He has 
every belief that the Classical Club 
and his colleagues will ultimately be 
able to solve the riddle.

Faculty and Students 
Debate Important Question 

Faculty Wins After Hard 

Struggle— Wilder Worst Speaker 

Brunswick, Me., April 2»— Last 
night in Memorial Hall, the Faculty 
crashed through by defeating the 
students in the rip-snortiest debate 
ever heard in Bowdoin. The subject 
was, "Resolved, that the saloons in 
Brunswick should keep open on Sun- 
day." Upholding the faculty were 
Professors Wilder and Brooke (This 
of course is the Wilder — Professor 
Gerald Gardner Wilder). On the neg- 
ative were R. C. Robbins '34, and J. D. 
Freeman '34, who represented the stu- 
dents. " 

Prof. Wilder opened the debate as 
the first speaker of the affirmative. 
The general theme of his speech was 
that Sunday was the only day upon 
which the faculty could get royally 
tight and still get royally tight. Great 
was the applause from the faculty, 
for they had evidently wondered why 
Wilder has always appeared so 
grouchy and dull on Monday morning. 
In fact the members of the faculty got 
wilder and wilder as Wilder's speech 

Robbins, as the first speaker of the 
negative, stressed the point that the 
students wished to study over the 
week ends. He said that when they 
started on their week end trips on 
Sunday evening, it wasn't always the 
best policy to be drunk at the time. 
His speech was not at all good, for 
the audience was immediately against 
him when he said, "Unaccustomed as 
I am to public speaking in Mitchell's 
class ....". He warmed up after 
this and soon all the students were 
loyal again, and were cheering at the 
tops of their voices. 

Professor Brooke was the next 
speaker. He said, in his deep pene- 
trating voice, that he could never get 
his French papers corrected unless he 
was spiffed to the eyebrows. Vyner 
said that he always marks too easily 
when he is sober. (Great cheers from 
the faculty and boos from the stu- 

Freeman was the last speaker of 
the evening. His main argument wat 
that there was too much drinking be- 
ing done around the college. In fact 
he said that one could no longer walk 
bare-footed in Maine. He said that it 
was necessary to wear rubber boots. 
(Since he hasn't any of these, we 
think that it is why he argued as he 

After the four speakers had got to- 
gether to prepare their rebuttals. 
Then it was announced that Wilder 
and Robbins would be the only ones 
to make the rebuttals. Robbins spoke 
first. He said that if the faculty could 
not get tight enough during the week 
to last them over the week end, they 
did not deserve to be members of 
this wonderfully drunk Bowdoin fac- 
ulty. Wilder then came up (The 
Lord only knows where he was, but 
we can guess.) and he was as mad as 
a hornet from what Robbins had said. 
It was from his fiery rebuttal that 
the faculty won the debate. He stated 
that the students were a bunch of 
milk-sops who could not stand getting 
soused on Sunday. He further stated 
that when they grew up and put away 
their childish things, they could be- 
come tight for three or four weeks at 
a time. He recalled once when he 
was under for a month. (Of course 
this was a good record, even for the 
hardy Wilder). 

After the speeches, the judges — 
Monarch, Caesar, Jerry, and the two 
Kappa Sigs, whose names we can't 
recall — got together and after the cus- 
tomary three hour delay, during which 
time the band played "Over the hill 
to the Speakeasy", the decisions were 
announced. Of course you know by 
this time that the faculty took the 
debate with a unanimous decision, for 
it was told you in the first line. Hence, 
in good "Orient" style, 1 shall tell 
you again: the faculty won!

Talks on Turgid 

(All questions and troubles will be 
insulted either privately, or privately, 
or publically, or publically.) 
Dear Father John: — 

For several weeks, aye verily for 
several months, I have been worried by 
a thing which I can neither explain 
nor explain. . It seems that Dean 
Nixon has been reading a letter in 
chapel every Saturday morning. You 
must know that the very voice of Iho 
Dean lulls me to sleep. Thies I have 
slept through a seemingly interest- 
ing discussion of ia periodical letter. 
Unable to account for this very un- 
usual thing, I am afraid that I must 
ask your advice. What should I do 
in this connection? It seems to mo 
that I have been missing something, 
but at the mention of the letter, 
everybody bursts into laughter. So 
I appeal to you to help me out of my 

Very truly yours, 

I. M. GOOFY '34 
Dear Mr. Goofy: — 

Having received your letter, we 
shall try to enlighten your stricken 
conscience. Nixon, it appears, is the 
dean at Bowdoin College. He has sev- 
eral close relationships with the 
Alumni (Second only to P. Wilder). 
The gentleman who presumably wrote 
the letter was evidently one of the 
men the Dean had the pleasure of 

Saturday after Saturday, month af- 
ter month, Dean Nixon has been 
elucidating the letter, (or rather the 
long theme), by paraphrasing five or 
six pages at a time. At this rate 
one would expect him to complete it 
soon. But no, he seems doomed to 
doomsday. It seems that this fool 
Alumnus insists upon boring you with 
his nonsensical letter. Every Satur- 
day morning for months the loud 
snores of the bored students have ir- 
ritated the Dean. 

The letter tells of the adventures of 
one of the not-so-loyal members of 
the Alumni Association. This member 
seems to have had a great deal of 
trouble in keeping away from the 
wiles of certain two dollar personages. 
He also remarks on the quality of the 
liquor at the various other schools 
that he attended. As far as we could 
gather, no comparison was made be- 
tween the aforementioned liquor and 
Glengarry Gingerale. (Doubtless there 
is no distinction to be made.) 

Our advice to you, dear sir, is to 
continue your siestas throughout the 
year. When the Dean has completed 
his discourse, which will probably be- 
at the end of your Senior year, we 
shall notify you; at that time, we shall 
investigate further into the matter 
concerning the cure of your sleeping 
at the sound of his over-musical 
voice. The solution of it will probably 
rest with the stopping of Dean 
Nixon's voice, but we can let the mat- 
ter ride until he finishes his letter for 
we are anxious to know if there is 
ever to be an ending. 

Sincerely yours, 


Dear Father John and Lydia Pink- 
ham: — 

I have been troubled with halitosis, 
gastralgia, flat and smelly feet, bad 
eyes, bad liver, pyorrhoea, swollen 
glands, falling hair, tonsilitis, ade- 
noids, and barbers' and seven years 
itch. What should I do in this pre- 
dicament ? 

Sincerely yours, 

J. Z. H. 
Dear J. Z. H.:— 

If we were troubled with these ail- 
ments, we think that we should go to 
the Topsham bridge and jump into the 
briny Androscoggin River.

Smallest Part 


Brunswick, April 31. — After weeks ! 
of fruitless argument and argumenta- j 
tion, the faculty decided upon a play 
for their annual sesquicentennial pro- '> 
duction and even cooperated with one 
another to the point of giving it last 
Monday night in Winthrop Hall Audi- j 
torium. Having censored the Gas and 
Mound choice, Arthur G. Stables' cele- 1 
brated "Hiawatha, or the Polish , 
Uprising", they fixed upon Arthur 
Langford's translation from the Ger- 
man of William Shakespeare, "The ' 
Merry Dives of Topsham". The cast, j 
to a man, was selected with the utmost 
care, and each player, the OCCIDENT j 
feels, was eminently suited to his par- j 
ticular role. It is to be regretted that i 
the celebrated foreign actress, Ev 
Lays, could not have been secured to 
play the feminine lead, but she held I 
out for a leading man of her own 
choosing, and hence, Professor C. T. 
Burnett, who has generously insisted 
upon his running the whole shebang. I 
thought it more than advisable to de- 
mand her so-called resignation and to 
choose a heroine from the rank of the

The play depicts, at random and for 
no apparent reason, the trials and trib- 
ulations of Kacie, the Virtuous Cham- i 
bermaid, who unwittingly falls in love 
with Earwig the Great Monarch (the 
Zetes paid high for this!). The ro- 
mance is complicated by the unhappily 
excellent condition of the respiratory 
systems of Queen Marcia and Jacque- 1 
line, who coalesce to block the love in- 
terest, as always. Childe Harolde wan- ■ 
ders in and out. Hosscar the Bold, j 
Kacie's jilted lover, in connivance with | 
Prince Knut von Braunschweig, long 
jealous of Earwig, succeed in obtain- 
ing the defection of two powerful 
barons, the Earl of Nothingdone and 
the Duke of Whiffletree, and after con- 
sulting with the Three Wise Guys of 
the East, decide to lead an army 
against Earwig. The King's Fool, 
however, overhears their plans and in- 
forms the King, who despatches Gen- 
eral Knuzenz with the loyal alumni, 
to the frontier camp of his general- 
issimo, General De Physchency. Childe 
Harolde continues to wander in and 

The Pageant of Flowers, introduced 
at this point by the Fairy Prince, is 
one of the daintiest parts of the show. 
Just why it should be introduced has 
vet to be figured out. Maybe THATs 
the plot! I hadn't thought of that 

The situation looks black for Ear- 
wig, but it is saved by two churls, John 
the Tall and Noel the Short, who 
whilst walking through the Bowdoin 
Pines (a large forest to the scow- west 
of the King's Palace wherein are said 

to be found all sorts of queer things) 
see a wondrous vision: St. James the 
Upright appears rebuking Ananias 
and telling them how the world is 
to be made safe for democrats. Going 
to the camp of Earwig's generals, they 
are able to guide them to victory over 
General De Cameron and the rebels at 
the celebrated Battle of the Holy Pole. 
Major Error, the imminent financial 
wizard of the Kingdom, dies in a fine 

Internal dissension has meanwhile 
broken out at the court. The Turnkey, 
the Butler and the Lord High Execu- 
tioner, through the favors of the sec- 
ond chambermaid (very jealous of 
Kacie), learn some of the King's se- 
crets. Their plans for a mutiny and 
the abduction of the young Princess 
Slipp are foiled by the sudden raid of 
Handsome Harry and his band of rob- 
bers who so complicate the action that 
it is useless to attempt to follow it 
further. The two laborers did not even 
appear — it is alleged that they had 
been previously asked to resign. 

All in all, the OCCIDENT reporter 
would like to say that the play was 
lousy, but not feeling that that would 
be exactly diplomatic, he will say that 
it could have been worse.

Ground - Crewer Upsets 

Gathering: of Dignitaries 



Brunswick, Africa, July 0. — Amid 
the wailing of the lovelorn widows of 
the erstwhile "Kollitch Guys", the 
members of the BowdoirPFaculty and 
the college ground crew made known 
today that a new list of men who de- 
served the horror of Phi Beta Kappa 
were to be chosen. The OCCIDENT 
immediately rushed down its asterisk 
reporter (it having: no stars at the I 
time) to cover this momentous event.; 
By the grace of Heaven and the help ! 
of one of the members of tke Math j 
Department (we hesitate to disclose 
his name!), the reporter managed to, 
reach the inner sanctuary of the com- 
mittee where the decisions were to be ; 
made. Professor Mitchell, the chief < 
ground-crewer of the ground crew, ' 
was also the big shot in this — he of) 
course being the chairman. When he ; 
made his speech, he easily brought! 
tears to the eyes of the faculty ( Ed 
note : Not a very easy thing to do in , 
these times). This speech will remain 
as the onlv one that ever made the 
faculty shed onion tears. The follow- 1 
ing is the start and finish of his 
memorable oration: 

"O, Captain, my Captain, our fateful , 
trip is done for, I love the State of 
Maine better than any spot in the ■ 
wide, wide world, for it is claimed that 
these appeals for imperialism have the 
sympathy of the American people. For 
no cause, in the very frenzy of wan- 
tonness and wildness, by the red hand 
of Murder he was thrust from the full 
tide of the world's interest . . . (Con- 
clusion) ... A ship lost at sea for 
many days suddenly sighted a friendly 
vessel. Prom the mast of the unfortu- 
nate vessel was seen the signal, 
"Knowledge, knowledge everywhere, 
but not a bit to learn". This, men, is 
the trouble with the Phi Betes now — 
they are too damn dumb! We must 
we MUST choose a new bunch. I 
henceforth nominate the following:

Opponents Dumbfounded 

The confusion was great and the 
names passed the vote with a substan- j 
tial majority. The opponents of Pro- j 
fessor Witchell were M dumbfounded 
at seeing the masterful way in which 
he put the measure through, that they 
could not recover their lost strength 
until it was too late to do any good. 
It was then that "Flannel-foot" Gilli- 
gan arose and stated. "This bores me 
to extinction, and all the rest." As 
soon as he had proclaimed this, the 
news of the results was announced to 
the multitudes which were jamming 
the Bowdoin campus. Great was the 
sorrow when they learned that this 
was the expected news, for they had 
thought that there would surely be a 
new faculty love nest revealed. But 
their sorrow soon turned to joy. and 
soon the new members of that un- 
worthy order of Phi Beta Kappa were 
being congratulated. "Doc" Brown 
took the prise when he stated that he 
had struggled for eight long years for 
the horror. Now that his dreams were 
realized he said that he could finally 
leave his Alma Mater with an easy 
conscience, knowing full-well that he 
had achieved success.

In further progress of the trial to-

the utmost of Justice's force will be 
applied to these dastardly criminals, 
as an example to all evil-doers. 

Gilligan's Fracas 
—After Battle 


"A dastardly machination" was the 
term used by Judge I. M. Bribed in a 
bitter denunciation of a plot by CaMY 
M. Sills and Walter Johnson, ar- 
raigned in District Court last Mon- 
day, who were attempting to acquire a 
complete monopoly of the poultry bus- 
iness of the country. "Such a plan," 
said the Judge, "which J would have 
resulted in the destruction of all th>? 
egg trade could have come only from 
the evil minds of the criminally in- 

Both criminals are believed by au- 
thorities to be experienced crooks. 
Johnson has a long criminal record 
and is known otherwise as "Walter 
the Rubber" and "Johnson the Stal- 
wart". He has had much experience 
in obtaining money under false pre- 
tenses. Not as much is known, how- 
ever, concerning his co-partner, Casey 
SIMs, though he is believed to have a 
history which he has thus far kept 
secret. Well-known psycho-analists, 
called to the witness stand, maintain 
that he has a villainous streak under 
his great self-possession. 

Daily readers of this paper will re- 
call its heroic efforts last week in 
bringing these two criminals before 
the court. Bad eggs were being 
dumped on the market, polluted chick- 
ens were filling the storerooms, the 
lives of all were threatened. By whom?

traced these chickens to Sills' very 
door and upon search found the mas- 
ter criminal spreading Cram's Hair

Brunswick, April 29 — Special Dis- 
patch to the Occident — Rival gangs of 
Bowdoin College, one of the poorer 
sections of this town, attempted to 
settle differences of long-standing by 
shooting it out yesterday afternoon. 
Tuffy Drake and his Appleton Anar- 
chists put the Hyde Hoodlums on the 
spot and completely disorganized their 
rivals. Mr. A. Chew Gilligan, an in- 
nocent (!) bystander, was shot in the 
fracas and is on the danger list at the 
Brunswick Nurses Home. 

The first signs of yesterday's gang 
war began about two in the afternoon. 
Suspicious - looking characters were 
seen hanging about the halls of Apple- 
ton Hall, mounting cannon and unlim- 
bering Lewis guns. At two-thirty, 
when many of the Hyde gang were 
either re-entering or leaving their 
stronghold. Tuffy Drake himself, with 
his second leftenant. Bozo Davis, ap- 
peared at the fourth-floor windows 
and gave the signal for the first volley; 
Delenda est Hubbardo! Boss Hubbard, 
who was just entering his office on the 
third floor of Hyde, vainly tried to 
rally his followers, but many were 
potted already, before they had had a 
chance to seek safety within the walls 
of Hyde. Jazzbo Philbrick and Buggs 
Bates were cut down; at the door of the 
building. Sinclair the Rat staggered 
in and collapsed half-way up the stairs 
to his post. The Hyde boys were at a 
distinct disadvantage throughout, 
what with the surprise and the fact 
that most of them were half shot to 
begin with. Under the valiant Hub- 
bard, and his seconds, Scarface Jake 
Lawrence, Boozer Robbins and Bruiser 
Baldwin, the Hyde bunch returned a 
feeble volly or two. but the Appleton 
racketeers had every window covered. 
Gilligan Gutted 

Mayor Philip S. Wilder arrived with 
the fire, police and street-cleaning de- 
partments and tried to see that Mar- 
quis of Queensberry rules prevailed, 
but their efforts were met with but 
little of anything but jeers from the 
racketeers. Mr. A. Chew Gilligan. 
quondam gay Lothario and man about 
town, fell on the steps of a nearby 
speakeasy — Lancaster's Place. Four 
hundred and fifty-two bullets passed 
through his" body in the fracas. On 
subsequent questioning with regard to 
the Gilligan shooting, Tuffy Drake is 
quoted as stating, "Must have been an 
accident." Gilligan himself is quoted 
as saying something quite different at 
the time, but thai heavy Brunswick cen- 
sorship rules do not permit further 

Finally, at two fifty-nine, a white 
flag was run up from Hyde and the 
firing slowed up, ceasing altogether 
sometime the next afternoon. The 
Hoodlum's stronghold had been re- 
duced to a mass of crumbling bricks 
and mortar by the Drake cannon and 
practically all the gang were now con- 
siderably more than half shot. Eight 
of the Hyde racketeers had been pot- 
ted, including Deadwood Dick Kidder 
and Butch Pickard. gangster who of 
late has been accused of many panel 
dynamitings in this section of the 
town. The Appleton Anarchists lost 
but one man, Bozo Davis, and as one 
of their number said, "He's no loss"! 
Bozo was shot down by Butch Pickard, 
just as Butch himself was plugged by 
Shorty Wadfcworth. The other Hyde 
casualties were Sure-Shot Harry Mar- 
tin, Cady the Mouse, and Tammany 

Gangsters Cornered 

Order finally prevailed that evening. 
Newspapermen and Jay T. Drool of the 
"Freeport Rising Bladder" spent the 
rest of the day interviewing principals 
of the fight. Mayor Wilder presented 
Tuffy Drake with the keys of the city. 
Tuffy modestly denied all knowledge 
of the fight on questioning by some 
squirt named Nixon. "I was over in 
the Library studying art" was the only 
statement he would make. Two gang- 
sters were held without bail: they gave 
their names as Francis M. Appleton of 

Principals in Gang Wars 

Bunganuc and Paul A. Walker of Cat- 
hance. The charge against them (pre- 
ferred by Street-Commissioner Gerald 
G. Wilder of this town) is blasphemy. 
Walker is further believed to be an 
arrant Bolshevik. Their cases will no 
doubt come up for trial this month. 
Mayor Philip Wilder has issued the 
following proclamation with regard to 
gang wars and racketeering in Bruns- 

"My arduous duties as Mayor, Fire 
Chief. Chief of Police. Superintendent 
of Schools, Commissioner of Public 
Safety and Judge of the First Short 
Circuit Court of Maine have kept me 
so busy this past week that I confess 
I have rather neglected such trivial 
things as this. Personally, I think it 
would be a very good thing if men 
like Davis. Payson and their crowd 
were killed off every day. 1 am. how- 
ever, genuinely sorry about Gilligan. 
He was a noble soul and it is a shame 
that these racketeers, since they must 
have wars, are such poor shots. 

With regard to the future, however. 
I can assure the good people of my 
constituency that some one of my va- 
rious self-appointed ftnwtions will 
have jurisdiction over any more whole- 
sale murders of this nature that mav 
occur. In such an event, rest assured 
that all steps will be taken to commer- 
cialize such a spectacle for the benefit 
of the town and adequate notice will 
be given of where and when to pur- 
chase! tickets. Such slip-shot and care- 
less work as was performed today, 
however, must and shall go. as sure as 
my name) is Philip Sawyer Wilder."

Philip Weston Meserve 

The Lovers' Comforter 

Cheerio everybody! Ah, love is a 
great thing, isn't it! Are you happy ? 
Come on smile! Or, if you're down- 
hearted and think the one of your 
fondest dreams is unresponsive, just 
sit down and write to Uncle Phil. 
Sure he can help you! Uncle Phil if> 
wise in the ways of love — you just 
trust him. And now Uncle Phil will 
open his mail and tell you how he 
meddles in other people's affairs. 
Watch Uncle Phil. 

Dear Uncle Phil: 

I am in love with a very beautiful 
young woman, who, I am sure, would 
return my love if her parents did 
not consider me a little too old for 
her. She is seventeen. I am eighty- 
four next Michelmas Day. What do 
you think? 



Well, I can answer that in a few 
sentences. I don't think you are so 
very much older than she is — not com- 
pared with the age of a dinosaur's 
egg anyway. If I were you, I'd go

Daw Phil: 

Tm one and only woman of my 
choke wont listen to my love. What 
shall I do? 


R. S. V. P. 
Huh! Topsham bridge is still avail- 
able on rainy Tuesdays! 

Dear Unlde Phil: 

I am very much in love with a cer- 
tain young man, but he is oh so dif- 
fident Does he scorn me do you sup- 

■- Anxiously, 

Probably. Or again, maybe your 
best friend wont tell you. 

Dear Uncle Philip: 

I am five-four, have blue eyes and 
lovely blond hair. I was twenty-one 
last birthday and father says I am 
a man now. 1 understand a man 
should go around with a girl, and even 
marry her someday. Now I have 
never liked girls— in fact, I have never 
liked to play with them. They have 
no attraction for me. Lately, how- 
ever, I have tried to cultivate a cer- 
tain young woman's acquaintance, but 
she is very indifferent to me. Mother 
telle me she cannot understand why, 
as I am so cute. Do you think pos- 
sibly I toy to be too forceful with 
them? That I try to dominate them 
too much? I am so worried. Wont 
you help me? 

Respectfully yours, 

„ . p - D. Q- 

Good morning, Mr. Vallee! If I were 

you, I'd make inquiries about openings 

in the millinery business. Or failing 

there, possibly you could find some 

fine, upstanding young man who would 

meke you a good husband

Ach, dies ist ein seltsames Problem!

Dear Phil: 

Should a fellow keep company with 
one girl these days? This is an old 
problem, I know, and yet it still crops 
up to worry me. Some of the fellows 
over at the Frat House are guying me 
because I go out with only one girl all 
the time. Now I want to be a good 
fellow, but it don't seem right for me 
to play Hepzibah double that way. I 
know she is true to me. What would 
you do under the circumstances. 

T. O. C 

I certainly wouldn't let the fellows 
over at the Frat House get under my 
skin. You know, the only way to suc- 
ceed in this world is to hold on to 
those good old ideals which helped so 
materially in building up our mighty 
nation. Be true to Hepzibah! Her love 
for you will never make you regret 

it, I feel sure, and if the other fel- 
lows persist in tormenting you, just 
tell them: "Sticks and stones will 
break my bones, but names will never 
hurt me!"

Prof Wanton Copious Waxes 

Witty on Women, Wine, 



Brunswick, April 25 
Professor Wanton Copious, profes- 
sor of biology at Bowdoin College, to- 
day announced the results of four- 
years of experiments which tend to 
substantiate the Lamarckian Theory 
of Evolution. Copious also believe.* 
that he has possibly been fortunate 
enough to observe the formation of a 
new human species — which he has 
termed provisionally Homo Dubiens. 
Homo Dubiens has descended directly 
from Homo Sapiens and resembles the 
latter very much save for a greatly 
reduced brain cavity, which in some 
cases is lacking altogether. He found

Discoverer of Homo Dubiens 

specimens of this new man-like being 
in living, apparently healthy, state in 
the marshes around Lewiston and in 
the highlands near Waterville and 
Orono. He doubts very much that 
Homo Dubiens will ever become in- 
telligent, certain malformations of the 
cranial cavity permanently prohibit- 
ing the growth of brain cells. Speci- 
mens were obtained of masculine, fem- 
inine and neuter genders. 
Students All Wet 

With regard to his experimental 
work on the Lamarckian concept of 
the principle of Use and Disuse, how- 
ever, definite results have been ob- 
tained at the two experimental sta- 
tions set up at Brunswick. Professor 
Copious, after observations of fifty 
years of Bowdoin College students, 
formulated the hypothesis that the 
constant trudging through the mud- 
flats and lakes of the campus should 
transform the normal foot of the 
freshman into the mudhook arrange- 
ment subsequently found inside the 
shoes of seniors. He investigated the 
matter, first securing legislation em- 
powering: him to remove any senior's 
sock whatsoever. This legislation, he 
added, he obtained only after a long 
struggle against the seniors, who ob- 
jected vigorously to such exposure. 
D. U.'s Approaching Fish Stage 

Working with extreme types, tfpes 
that seemed especially aquatic by en- 
vironment, he made an intensive sta- 
tistical study of the feet of all D. U.'s 
and A. T. O.'s in college in the last 
Ave years. The results of his meas- 
urements show a smooth curve of 
growth to the mudhook stage from the 
freshman to the senior year. 

Professor Copious believes that in 
these results, he has a beginning of 
the long-sought definite proof of 
Lamarck's Theory, for in compiling 
the statistics of the individuals 
studied, he found that those descended 
from Bowdoin men of previous years 
showed a marked advance in develop- 
ment over those men whose fathers 
or grandfathers did not attend Bow- 

Brunswick, April 28— What pur- 
ported to be one of the biggest mys- 
teries in years and years was solved 
today by the efficient Spy Squad of 
the Bowdoin Faculty. Chief Spy 
Nixon, ably seconded by his assistants 
Johnson, Wilder and Wilder, showed 
himself a thorough-going investigator, 
one of the best perhaDS that America 
has seen since the days of Marshall 
Perley Cram. 

A suspicious telegram was inter- 
cepted at the Postal Onion office here 
in Brunswick this morning, addressed 
to a certain prominent figure. It read 
as follows: YOU MUST STOP 1 
YOU DONT STOP. No more informa- 
tion could be gathered than this, and 
out of consideration for the honor of 
the faculty, the sender's name was not 
published. At eleven o'clock it was 
discovered that WaUer Johnson had 
disappeared at the end of a digging 
campaign with one hundred thirty- 
five dollars and fifty-three cents col- 
lected from among students of the 
four classes at Bowdoin College. At 
this, the Dean remarked, "The thick 
grows souper", and the hunt was on. 
The Dean feared the worst, but the 
first check-up that could be made on 
the student body could not be taken 
till the nejrt morning, when at the 
compulsory chapel services, the only 
man absent proved to be Wesley 
Peables Cushman of No. 1 Hyde. 
Meanwhile, however, Spy P. S. Wilder 
had discovered that Nana, imported 
gin-hound of Professor Barnfield 
Smith, had appeared that morning 
with a new collar and a protective 
wire casing. A warrant was speedily 
issued and Professor Smith's cellar 
searched, but no clues were found that 
could be found later after the Spy 
Squad had finished. 

A new motive had thus been added: 
arson. With two such vicious char- 
acters as Johnson and Cushman loose, 
a cordon of mounted militia was 
thrown around Brunswick and Bung- 
anuc. In the midst of the plans for 
the defense, however, Cushman and 

Johnson suddenly reappeared. Both 
told the same story — strange as it 
may seem. They nad merely been 
off on a week-end spree, and had re- 
turned none the worse for wear, ex- 
cept that the money was now in 
Cushman's hands and Walter had 
thrown his dice away up near Quebec. 
But the Dean was sure that a mur- 
der had been committed, or should 
have been committed after such a 
telegram, and he and his lieutenants 
began a systematic search of Whit- 
tier and Pickard Fields. In a sink- 
hole beyond the latter field was found 
the body of a young man. His 
pockets had been picked, as an un- 
signed receipt for fifteen dollars and 
forty-nine cents was found pinned to 
his coat lapel. Doc Johnson himself 


pronounced the man dead after mak- 
ing a rigorous examination consisting 
of questioning the body, an offer of 
medicinal whiskey and a few words 
whispered in the diseased's right ear. 
Doctor Gross did the embalming, and 
the body was carried in state to its 
final resting place in the basement of 
Massachusetts Hall. By general 
agreement among the members of the 
searching party, the identity of the 
corpse will be kept strictly secret 
until a new instructor of French can 
be obtained. Meanwhile, or until the 
Dean and his confreres can finish up 
such minor details of the crime as de- 
termining the murderer, the entire 
Freshman Class has been put on pro- 

Record Attendance 

At Gospel Mission 

Brunswick, April 28— A record at- 
tendance was recorded at the regular 
Tuesday evening prayer meeting of 
the Gospel Mission. The Right Rev- 
erend Doctor Daniel Krause delivered 
a very illuminating sermon on the 
subject "Wine, Women, and Song, or 
Don't Send My Son to Bates". Sexton 
Lowell even managed to stay awake 
throughout. Elder Perry led the con- 
gregation in prayer, while Deacon 
Stearns and Deacon Briggs passed the 
plate. Deacon Mullen let it pass him. 


Special dispatch to the OCCIDENT 
Bowdoin Professor in Accident 

Portland, April 29 — Professor* Mar- 
shall P. Cram of the Bowdoin Col- 
lege faculty met with a severe acci- 
dent this morning, suffering the los* 
of his right eye. Professor Cram was 
in Portland with friends and it is be- 
lieved that a lady stuck her hatpin 
through the keyhole. Gerald G. Wild- 
er, celebrated criminologist, is at 
present looking into the affair. 

— It is June, and graduation time. Sybil 
Hersheye, sweet sixteen and a few 
days on top of that 1b heart-broken. 
She is secretly in love with Snorton 
Snickering, handsome college senior; 
but he has spurned all her advances 
because the sire of the Hersheye's is 
partly nuts. But Sybil is determined 
to advance! and advance. See for your- 
self what happens: (Go on with the 
story. We dast you tu!) 
Chapter Seven 

"Ooooooo! I never did expect to see 
you, Snorton. Look what I've got for 
vou." She spoke sweetly with all the 
fascination and coyness of a char- 
woman, and exhibiteoVa pocket cask 
of gin. "I filched it from Papa's pants 
to fetch to you. He passed out taking 
a bath in the kitchen sink and his 
beard is caught in the drain." 

"Egad, Sybil, but I come to think 
vou a more comely strumpet everv 
day." Snorton was one of those Phi 
Beta Kappas who carried his key in 
a ring which accounts fon his scholarly 
speech. Sybil loved it. Also his 
scholarly speech. 

"Do away with the vile stuff"! he 
exsnorted, taking it from her dainty 
hands and inserting it in his hip pock- 
et. From his mother he had inherited 
an incurable thirst for knowledge and 
from his father an incurable thirst. 

Poor Rollo, his roommate, was killed 
by a flask of lightning and ever since 
then — Snorton stifled a sob with his 
shirt-tail, and vaulted into his Austin. 
"I'll take you home and off the streets, 
gal." He did — after vanquishing the 
vile stuff. 

Mother Hersheye greeted htr 
flushed offspring some hours subse- 
quently at the threshold of the Mill 
Street Mansion. She noticed that one 
of Sybil's shoes was muddy. "What 
makes your right shoe so obviously 
reminiscent of Brunswick pavements 
and not the other!" 

"I changed my mind." replied Sybil, 
rollings her good eye. And so to bed. 

Night fell again next evening and 
Snorton Snickering, polo player extra- 
ordinary, found himself well on his 
way to satiating his incurable thirst 
for the second time since chapter seven 
began. He was capitulated to an un- 
comfortable reclining position from 
out of Alex Zizzit's Soda Emporium. 
Picking himself up, he discovered his 
legs to have their own ideas as to di- 
rection, but being a philosopher, he let 
nature take its course. Two co-eds 
passed him. (Well, they WOULD have 
been co-eds if the COLLEGE had been 
co-ed. They were doing pretty well as 
it was . . .) Snorton paid them no 
attention. He had found that there 
were two kinds of co-eds— those who 
expect something, and those who sus- 
pect something. The former far out- 
weighed the latter. Sometimes by as 
much as twenty pounds. So he paid 
them no attention. After all. that was 
the only thing he had plenty of. 

Before he realized it he was con- 
fronted by Sybil, accompanied by 
Snorton's big friend. O'Bangen Pullet 
"Why. Snorton," mouthed the minx, 
"you have shaved off your moustache." 
The erstwhile Senior, crestfallen, the 
temper of his mettle sorely tried. 
"Couldn't stand the dandruff on my 
vest," he fozzled and slumped to the 
ground — a beaten man. 

TOMORROW: Sybil's latest devel- 


Will cure colds, pink eye, ath- 
lete's foot, and diphtheria. 

"I give a bottle a day to my 
children," says Professor Marshall 
.Perley Cram. "It keeps them well 
and healthy."

Twenty-Seven Collegiate Correspondents are Guests of 
Pi Delta Epsilon; Pres. Sills Opens Annual Conclave 

- ■■* ■ 1 1 


Twenty-seven student journalists gathered within the halls of 
Bowdoin last Friday and Saturday for the annual New England 
College Press Board Conference, representing eleven northern in- 
stitutions. Mr. Philip S. Wilder, Alumni Secretary, was in charge 
of arrangements. 

The conference opened at one o'clock, Friday, when President 
Sills delivered a short welcoming address at the Moulton Union 
Luncheon. Immediately following, the journalists adjourned to 
Memorial Hall where Mr. Arthur G. Staples, Litt.D., Editor of the 
Lewiston Journal, spoke on "The Editor's Wastebasket".

Quite charmingly did the Lewiston 
newspaperman discuss the relation of 
college news to the press of the world, 
telling how student publicity must 
pass through three "wastebaskets" be- 
fore it is published: the college edi- 
tor's own scrap-heap, then that of the 
metropolitan editor, and finally "the 
broad national, rather abnormal 

Must Disinfect Spring Poetry 

Speaking of his own grim container: 
"It has very broad meshes so that the 
air may permeate and disinfect the 
contents, especially the spring poetry." 
Mr. Staples' wastebasket was original- 
ly used in the manufacture of real 
Maine cheese. 

"Why does not more college mate- 
rial appear in the daily press?" 
queried the speaker; then answering 
his own question he said, "It is because 
you do not edit" Newspapers must 
take care to reprint only the items 
which will have strong reader-appeal. 

Mr. Staples stressed the fact that 
newspapers give, rather than receive, 
the favor from the college correspon- 
dent. The news editor, stated the

College Sports Overrated 

Colleges often lose newspaper pub- 
licity by continually using the same 
form, both for the writing and prepar- 
ing of articles for the mail. A signifi- 
cant statement by the Lewiston man 
was, "We are just as interested in 
feats of scholarship as in feats of 
sport . . . Sports are greatly over 
rated . . . the real interest of the 
colleges are also in other things." 

Of college scandal Mr. Staples con- 
tinued: "If a star athlete is fired off 
the team, don't deny or evade it ; tell it 
as it is. If a coach is through, let it 
be known — it will be a one day sensa- 
tion. If a college scandal arises, let it 
be handled circumspectly by a good 
man, and let all of the boys in on it." 

"The worse the scrape, the more 
candid I would be," concluded the 
speaker: "and the quicker it is over 
the better." 

Has Varied Program 

On Saturday the guests were the au- 
dience of Robert Ii. Beith. of the Port- 
land Evening Express, who told of 
"Writing for the Snorts Page": of

Hometown Paper". Besides these for- 
mal activities, the delegates were pres- 
ent at a luncheon given by the Bow- 
doin chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon, and 
also attended the Amherst Debate and 
the Frosh-Bridgton track meet. 

Bowdoin's delegation to this Press 
Conclave included: Philip S. Wilder, 
Edward B. McMenamin. correspondent 
for the Portland Express; William U. 
Clay, correspondent for the Boston 
Post; Henry S. Dowst, assistant to the 
Alumni Secretary, and Margaret M.

Speaks for Extension of 
Reading Period 


Final Issue of Year Has 

Record Eighty-Eight 



Fred E. Morrow, ex-'31, Contributes 

Article Entitled "Bowdoin, the 

Nurturer of Men" 



Albert Samuel Davis '33 was jucged 
thei best speaker in the Bradbury Prize 
Debate held last Thursday evening in 
the Debating Room of Hubbard Hall. 
The affirmative side, composed of 
Stephen R. Deane *34, James C. Flint 
'31, and A. Samuel Davis '33. won the 
debate, the subject of which was "Re- 
solved, that the reading period be ex- 
tended to two weeks". Associate Pro- 
fessor Kirkland, Mr. Daggett, and Mr. 
Child's English 6 class were the 
judges. Herbert T. Wadsworth '33 

The Bradbury Debating Prize origi- 
nated in a bequest to the college by ! 
James Ware Bradbury of the class of ; 
1825 who left a sum, the income of! 
which is used annually for prizes in ! 
debating. At the present time.; the ! 
winning side receives twenty dollars | 
apiece^ the losing side ten dollars while 
the best speaker receives an additional 
fifteen dollars. 

Deane Opens Affirmative 

The opening speaker for the affirma- 
tive side was Stephen Deane who I 
pointed out that the lack of review pe- 
riods in college courses handicapped 
incoming students who had become 
used to them in preparatory schools. A 
two-week reading period would be an 
adequate substitute for such reviews. 
Bowdoin's* large academic mortality is 
partly due to the short reading period. 

His colleague, James C. Flint, 
showed that an increased reading pe- 
riod would aid in carrying out the pur- 
pose of the college as pointed out by 
President Hyde. It would give an op- 
portunity for independent research 
and correlation instead of the cram- 
ming which results from the present 
system. The third speaker, A. S. Davis, 
stressed the impossibility of review- 
ing the two hundred hours or so spent 
in recitations and laboratory work ade- 
quately in two days. He pointed out 
the unfairness of the present system 
for students striving for honors or 
striving to remain in college. 

New System Would Waste Time 

The negative side of the debate was 
upheld bv Lincoln Smith '32. Albert W. 
Tarbell '32, and Paul A. Walker '31. 
The speakers showed that the larger 
part of the time allotted for the read- 
ing period under the new scheme 
would be wasted by the majority of 
students while the more conscientious 
students would not need two weeks for 
preparation. The two-week reading 
periods would take nearly one month 
out of the eight devoted to work. 
It would interfere with Ivy Day, and 
with various other activities. It would 
allow only six days of class work be- 
tween the Christmas holidays and the 
start of the reading period. Lastly it 
would give the professors an extra 
month of leisure. "The Devil finds 
work for idle hands to do", knowingly 
remarked one of the speakers. 

Jack Magee's cindermen more than 
lived up to expectations last Saturday, 
when they garnered 44 1-4 points 
against the most powerful aggrega- 
tion of trackmen Army has collected 
in years. Weakness in the dashes and 
long distances handed clean sweeps 
and a total of 90 3-4 points to the 

Though the Polar Bears fell before 
West Point's onslaught, Charlie Stan- 
wood, Bowdoin's best bet in any meet, 
won individual high scoring honors for 
the afternoon with first in the high 
hurdles, high jump, and a second in 
the low hurdles. His running mate, 
Ray McLaughlin, appearing in his 
first varsity competition since an en- 
forced layoff last Fall, completed the 
White's supremacy in the timber- 
topping, with a first in the lows, and 
runner-up in the highs. 

Army Forfeits Hammer 

West Point, not officially recogniz- 
ing the hammer throw in a meet, 
ceded a sweep to the visitors in that 
event. The Northern men scored an- 
other majority of points in the broad- 
jump, when Dan Johnson, in spite of 
an injured leg, hurtled over the pit to 
hang up a 21 foot 10 3-4 inch mark. 
Briggs took third with 21 feet 1-2 

Francis Appleton edged in on a quad- 
ruple tie for high honors in the pole 
vault when Davis, Young and Wold of 
the Army joined him in a soaring leap 
of 11 feet 6 inches. Harry Thistle- 
waite was the lone Polar Bear con- 
testant to figure in the afternoon's 
straight running. The fleet middle- 
distance star fought his way to a sec- 
ond in a 51.4 second quarter mile. 

Blond "Swede" Larsen, star per- 
former on 1934's track outfit, entered 
his first major competition last week; 
and emerged with a creditable show- 
ing of two thirds, chalking up a 40 
feet 10 inch heave in the sixteen 
pound pellet, and an amendment to 
Stanwood's first in the high jump, 
with a spring of 5 feet 8 inches. Ol- 
son rounded out the Bear's scoring 
when he sped the javelin through the 
air 163 feet 10 1-4 inches. 

White Weak in Track Events 

Though Jack Magee's men gave a 
stellar performance in the hurdles and 
several field events, they displayed a 
woeful inefficiency in the sprints and 
distances. Army swept the boards in 
a 10 second century, a 21.4 furlong; 
and likewise in a swift 4:25.4 mile, a 
2.01 half-mile and a 10:00.8 two mile

The Quill, forthcoming next Wed- 
nesday, has acquired a hitherto un- 
equalled total of eighty-eight pages, 
and not only is the format of the pub- 
lication vastly enlarged, but the ma- 
terial contains some of the most inter- 
esting stories and articles vet printed. 

After the appearance of next week's 
issue, the 1932 Quill Board will be 
elected from the present members of 
the staff. The additional pages of this 
number constitute the final gesture of 
the old Quill Board as they pass on to 
make way for the new; a wealth of 
splendid feature and fiction garnish 
the enlarged edition. 

Professor Clarence Little, former 
president of the University of Maine, 
and present member of the faculty of 
the University of Michigan, has writ- 
ten a compelling article, "Not by 
Bread Alone". In this feature Prof. 
Little discusses religious faith from a 
very modern point of view. Likewise 
does he stress the exigency for some 
kind of faith, despite one's religious 
convictions. Prof. Little has earned 
the right to indict such a writing inas- 
much as he has become prominent for 
his work in social research.

Free Hitting on Part of Bates and Lack on Part of White 
Team Results in Loss of Game 


A very much improved Bates baseball team defeated the Polar 
Bear nine by the score of 11-8 at Lewiston last Monday. The game 
was one of those free hitting, free scoring, see-saw exhibitions of 
the national pastime which are interesting from the spectator's 
point of view but are more often than not very poor baseball 


Smith and Davis Favor 

Award of Nobel Prize to 

Sinclair Lewis 

By a two to one decision of the 
judges a two-man Bowdoin debating 
team composed of Lincoln Smith '32 
and Albert Samuel Davis '38 defeated 
Amherst's debating team in the an- 
nual Amherst debate held last Friday 
evening in Memorial Hall. Bowdoin 
upheld the affirmative of the ques- 
tion, "Resolved, that Sinclair Lewis 
should have been awarded the Nobel 
Prize." Amherst was represented by 
Robert Alan Green and Harrison 
Bates Clapp. Professor Wright of 
Bates College, Dr. Meisenbach of 
Portland, and Dr. Goodrich of Bruns- 
wick were the judges while Mr. Childs 

The first speaker on the affirmative, 
Lincoln Smith '32, after welcoming 
the visiting team, gave a short sketch

Bates started the scoring off in its 
half of the first frame. Heddericg 
first up for the Garnet flyed out to 
Shute in right field. Toomey found 
Brown for a single and preceded Mil- 
lett home when the latter drove out 
a circuit clout. McCluskey popped out 
to Brown but Flynn found the Bow- 
doin pitcher for a ringing double. 
Berry got a single to score Flynn but 
was caught napping off second. 

Bowdoin decided to make up the 
deficit in the scoring account in the 
second. Shute singled and Bennett 
walked. Crimmins sacrificed bringing 
Shute and Bennett around to third and 
second respectively, so that when 
Parmenter singled two Bowdoin runs 
scored. Brown bunted and Parmenter 
went to second. Two Bates errors 
brought in Bowdoin's third run. Rick- 
er struck out to retire the side. 
Garnet on Spree 

The Bates aggregation had a hit- 
ting spree in their half of the second, 
finding Brown for no less than five 
hits and two of those doubles. In the 
third the Garnet got one run off Mor- 
rell and Bowdoin added another to its 
score in the (fourth and the score 
stood Bates 8 - Bowdoin 4. In the

Famous New York Recording Orches- 
tra Returns to Bowdoin 



The committee in charge of the Ivy 
plans has engaged Red Nichols and his 
Five Pennies from New York to play 
at the Ivy Gym Dance. The commit- 
tee is fortunate in being able to obtain 
the services of this well known band 
which is making a northern tour this 
month, as it is considered one of the 
best dance orchestras in the country. 
In addition to his regular personnel, 
Nichols will bring with him the well 
known musical artist, Bix Beidebecke. 

All this winter. Nichols and his band 
have been playing in the Broadway 
musical hit "Girl Crazy" with numer- 
ous shorter engagements in places 
such as the Hotel New Yorker. On j 
May 15, they are scheduled to play at 
the Yale Prom. A few days before 
their engagement here the band will 
perform at spring dances at Williams 
and Holy Cross. They are famous re- 
cording artists, having appeared on 
many Brunswick records such as the 
recent hit, "When Kentucky Bids the 
World 'Good Morning' ". The band ap- 
peared at a Commencement Dance at 
Bowdoin a few years ago at which 
tima it was verv well received. 

At a meeting of men interested in 
horse-back riding, held last Wednes- 
day evening in the Psi U. House, a 
Riding Club was organized and a con- 
stitution and by-laws were drawn up. 
Ed Fuller '31 was elected president 
and Free Harlow '32 was made treas- 
urer. The Riding Club is starting a 
polo team which will compete with 
the teams of neighboring clubs. 

The team practices three times a 
week in the polo field behind the Psi 
U. House at 3.30 p.m. Late this sea- 
son the team may play against the 
Danvers Riding Club and the Port- 
land Club. Next autumn it will com- 
pete with the teams of nearby army 
units. The men are at present di- 
vided into two scrub teams coached 
by Free Harlow and Nort Pickering 
'31 who are the only men with pre- 
vious polo experience. Besides Har- 
low and Pickering, the other outstand- 
ing possibilities for the team are Ed 
Fuller '31, Hall Stiles '33 and Roger 
Buffington '32. 

"The Sabbath was made for man, 
not man for the Sabbath", was the 
text of President Sills' brief but clear 
and interesting Sunday chapel talk in 
which he discussed Sunday observance 
/rom a "historical, legal, sociological 
and personal standpoint". President 
Sills began by showing the present 
interest in the question of Sunday ob- 
servance. At present both the legis- 
lature of New Hampshire and the Par- 
liament of Great Britain are discuss- 
ing measures concerned with this sub- 
ject. To one who is going out into 
the world and to one who will soon 
assume the responsibilities of a home, 
the question is one of particular in-

history from its origin with the He- 
brew nation to its present status as a

He has had a brilliant career since 
his graduation from King's College,

sociation next year. He stressed the 
necessity of attracting the best minds 
of the college to the B.C.A., the ma- 
jority of whom, he said, had probably 
not become interested in the work of 
the Association. These men might 
easily be attracted by an interesting 
program for the B.C.A. 

Mr. Kitchen then described a pos- 
sible program that might be followed 
by the Association next year. The 
Association could obtain interesting 
speakers who would discuss national 
and international problems such as the 
color question and foreign relations. 
The Association might also engage in 
some kind of social work such as 
starting a local Boys' Club. In clos- 
ing Mr. Kitchen asked that the B. C. 
A., send about six delegates, if pos- 
sible, to the New England College 
Christian Association Conference in 
Northfield, Mass.. this spring.

Required Courses 

In outlining the Centenary program for Haverford College on 
Centenary Day President Comfort announced the abolition of re- 
quired courses as a definite phase of future plans for Haverford. 
The Haverford News exults. Required courses have for no brief 
period been the subject of much protest and argument among un- 
dergraduates. In the future English will be required of freshmen 
at Haverford, otherwise the college course will be determined in 
accordance with the interests of the individual. 

All this causes us to reflect on the encircling system of required 
courses at Bowdoin, and we see in the Haverford departure much 
that merits discussion. That required courses, from an educa- 
tional point of view, have real value cannot honestly be denied. 
That they round off one's education, and preserve it from over- 
specialization is only too true. The discipline which they neces- 
sarily involve is, theoretically speaking, of great benefit. On the 
other hand the system has very definite drawbacks. 

In the first place required courses are by their very nature made 
up of individuals who, had they any choice in the matter, would 
never surrender themselves to the infinite boredom which this sys- 
tem necessarily involves. Through this system education subjects 
itself to an unnecessary ordeal. In the first place it serves to alien- 
ate the two principal factors, the instructor and the student. Lack 
of preparation on the part of the student is a direct result of lack 
of interest ; and the imitation of the instructor which culminates 
this predicament gains little or nothing for either of the two 
parties. That students should give as little time as possible to 
courses which are incompatible with their interests is only too 
natural. That instructors should relax under the strain of drag- 
ging this lodestone is inevitable. 

Bowdoin has many required courses which are merely a bore 
to many who are forced to take them. These courses considered in 
themselves have real value no doubt to those who are actually in- 
terested but are of very questionable value to those who might 
otherwise be using their time to better advantage. The college 
may gain no little benefit from the Haverford Plan : at least the 
abolition of required courses might well be given consideration in 
Bowdoin's plan for the future. 

no honor for their desuetude. The average undergraduate is wont 
to be skeptical of any group which calls itself honorary, and does 
nothing to prove it. 

In conclusion, there may be men on the campus who merit the 
distinction of belonging to an honorary society. They merit this 
purely on account of their activity in various phases of college life. 
It is indeed paradoxical- that these men should be grouped together 
in a society which is questionably honorary and actually inactive. 

In the same manner let us take a look at another of Bowdoin's 
"honorary" societies — Pi Delta Epsilon. This organization, na- 
tional in scope, is made up of undergraduates who have served two 
years on the board of any college publication. Founded with high 
ideals and purposes — to give college writers and publishers more 
contacts with one another, to aid in any way possible the cause of 
promoting better college journalism by the interchange of ideas 
among its members, and to serve in any useful capacity in matters 
connected with the publications and press boards of the colleges 
and universities where it has chapters — Pi Delta Epsilon has 
built up for itself a nationally fine reputation. What of the Bow- 
doin chapter? One wonders. Here again it is the same old story. 
It started out with much publicity and many fine schemes. But so 
far this year, to say nothing of its own lack of initiative, it has 
failed to live up to its purpose in the one chance the college has 
provided for it to be of service. At the recent collegiate press 
board conference held here Pi Delta Epsilon had two members — 
and at least one of these not initiated — present and ready to help 
with details. And these were there not to represent the society 
but at the suggestion of the committee running the conference. 
Patently, even with such an opportunity to do something, Pi Delta 
Epsilon has fallen down on the job. 

Furthermore, we understand that of all the present enrolled 
members in the Bowdoin chapter only a ridiculously small minority 
have ever been properly initiated. Not that that side of it is any 
of our business, but it seems to point out rather plainly the inert 
character and lack of interest of those in responsible positions. 

The Pi Delta Epsilon chapter has been here long enough to 
prove its worth. In most of the other places where it is established 
it is working out some plan to better undergraduate publications 
or to accomplish something of some value. Here it does nothing. 
It seems about time for the Bowdoin chapter to get started on some 
sort of a program, no matter how rudimentary, and stop discredit- 
ing a national society's good name. It is a case of stopping sham 
— either reorganize or go out of business.

/Editorial Vision 

There has been much discussion of late among editors of Col- 
lege papers concerning the range of editorial policy. Two very 
definite schools of thought exist. Some editors feel that the col- 
lege paper should confine its columns merely to those subjects 
which deal directly with their particular institutions or with the 
collegiate world in general. The other school of thought is very 
much in favor of widening the range of editorial comment to dis- 
cussions of every day problems. — problems which are of interest 
to every intelligent individual in present day society. 

Publications which believe in narrowing the range of their 
editorials do so because they feel that the student body has no 
active interest in practical problems. They also feel that they are 
incompetent to discuss adequately modem trends. They maintain 
that the undergraduate had best wait until he actually comes in 
contact with these realities. 

More progressive college editors are of the opinion that these 
matters must be given attention by anyone who is intellectually 
alive. They feel that the natural restrictions which make the col- 
lege student a passive factor in society are no reasons for denying 
him a discussion of practical problems from a student point of 
view. It is indeed a sad commentary on undergraduate life that 
it too often causes us to sever connections with the hurly burly of 
the every day world. 

The Orient feels that the challenge of Uncle Dudley in the Bos- 
ton Globe when he says "O, dismount from your high horses, drop 
your books for a while, go down on the wharves, get into the rfcugh- 
and-tumble, 'expose thyself to feel what wretches feel', drop your 
intellectual snobbery, outgrow your scholastic dandification, test 
your ideas in heat, cold, hunger, sweat, tears, anxiety, heartache, 
discouragement, suffering, and danger", is exactly in line with 
what progressive college editors are trying to do. In the realiza- 
tion of practical -reality, as well as in understanding the value of 
scholastic theory the college editor envisions the world as it 
actually is. 

The Inactives 

Shortly Ibis, Senior honorary society, will hold its only meeting 
of the current college year. The inactivity of this society is 
explained by the fact that there exists among some of its members 
the fallacious idea that an honorary society at Bowdoin need not 
necessarily perform any special function. That the honorary char- 
acter of this society will suffice to justify its existence is gravely 

In the first place there are too many organizations on the cam- 
pus which have "to work for a living" and in the second place Ibis 
is falling into the class of those that do nothing and gain little or

Rome having no regularly reoccurring 
holidays such as our Sunday. In the 
early days of Christianity, the Sab- 
bath was changed from the seventh to 
the first day of the week and it was 
now considered to commemorate the 
resurrection of the Lord. From the 
time of Constantine, the Sabbath has 
been made the subject for formal reg- 
ulation by laws varying in rigidity and 

"What seems to me of great im- 
portance is to find out the general 
principles that may be applied to 
changing conditions. In the 
place it seems clear that from every 
point of view, social, economic, psy- 
chological and religious, it is a wise 
policy to have one day in the week 
separate and distinct on a different 
basis from all other days, in Shake- 
speare's parlance, 'That doth divide 
the Sunday from the week'. 

"But there is another and more im- 
portant question: How is the leisure 
to be used ? That indeed is to be one 
of the most important problems which 
you and your generation will be called 
upon to solve. There is no lasting 
benefit if all leisure goes for physical 

All Must Have Equal Benefits 

The President then showed the un- 
fairness of certain regulations which 
permitted Sunday golf and tennis but 
prohibited Sunday baseball. Such reg- 
ulations permit the upper classes to 
enjoy themselves but rob the working 
class of their merited rest. It would 
be a good idea if physical recreation 
were curbed during church hours so 
that sports would not interfere with 
church worship. Besides worship and 
recreation, meditation and the reading 
of good books should have a part in a 
Sunday program. 

"I may close with a word or two of 
advice : As you leave college and make 
your own home, do not leave out of 
consideration the question of Sunday 
observance. If you are a member of 
a church, you will naturally realize 
the necessity both for yourself and for 
others of observing the day with some 
fitting exercise. If you have no church 
and no affiliation with the church, at 
least set aside a certain part of every 
Sunday for reading and reflection. 
Make the day different from other 
days; make a few sacrifices if neces- 
sary to keep it different; when you 
have established a home of your own, 
make Sunday sacred to your home at 
least. You will find your life richer 
and your contribution to your com- 
munity not without avail. 

In the quaint words of George Her- 

'Sundays observe; think when the 
bells do chime 

Tis angels' music . . . .'"

Del Galbraith, Bowdoin's wizard 
with the hammer, advanced the White 
and Black to its second national place 
in weights, when he took third in the 
Penn Relay Carnival at the University 
of Pennsylvania. Saturday, April 25. 
Bowdoin's relay quartet, sorely crip- 
pled by ineligibilities and injuries, 
placed forth in its mile race. 

On Friday the medley relay team, 
composed of Thistlewaite as the lead- 
off quarter miler. Stanwood and 
Hickok running the furlong, and Larry 
Usher doing the anchor half-mile, 
raced in a crowded, twelve-school heat, 
emerging seventh. 

The! second day, rainy, cold, and with 
the track in poor condition, found the 
mile relav group ready for action 
against Hampton. Catholic U, Michi- 
gan Normal, St. Johns. Stevens Tech, 
and Long Island JJ. The Polar Bear 
quarter-milers were Hickok, Briggs, 
Stanwood and Thistlewaite. 

Running against flashy competition, 
handicapped by the loss of Dan John- 
son because of a leg injury, the White 
representatives raced across the line a 
close fourth. Just shy of the chosen 
first three. 


Ben Houser's nine inaugurated their 
second out-of-state trip of the season 
by whaling the Massachusetts State 
College aggregation at Amherst 9-4. 
Sophomore Dave Means yielded the 
erstwhile Aggies only seven hits in his 
varsity debut, while the White batters 
collected eleven safeties from the 
offerings of Wherity and Tikofski. 
The work of both teams in the field 
was shabby, each drawing four errors. 
Jit Ricker, King Crimmins, Carl Par- 
menter, and Sid McKown improved 
their batting averages with two hits 
apiece, while McKown and Sonny 
Dwyer each garnered a three bagger. 
Bowdoin overcame and blotted out a 
two run handicap with a big second 
inning, and put the game on ice with 
further tallies in the sixth, seventh, 
and final frames.

Bowdoin's Polar Bear Cubs proved 
conclusively that they are a well-bal- 
anced unit when they piled up 90 
points against the Bridgton cinder- 
men's 37 last Saturday at Whittier 
Field. Minus the stellar sprinter, 
Allen, and the versatile fieldman, Lar- 
sen, the White juniors swept the 
boards in three events, and scored 
heavily in all others. 

In this first open-air contest, un- 
marked by the spectacular, save for 
the amazing quarter won by Smith of 
the visitors, the White tripled in the 
century, 220, and the mile. Hindered 
by a strong wind on the backstretch 
Freddie Burton managed to hang up a 
satisfactory 2:11.4 half mile, followed 
by Heinie Hubbard of Bowdoin. 

Pope and Skillings shared honors 
when the former took over the broad 
jump and the pole vault, and the 
erstwhile Deering star broke the tape 
in both the 100 and 220. 

Quarter Mile Alone Notable 

Braley Gray took the pole at the 
crack of the gun in the 440 yard dash, 
and lengthened his stride to pick up 
a seven yard margin over Smith of 
Bridgton. Reid of the cubs followed 
third all the way. Until he hit the 
disastrous backstretch, Gray was well 
in the van; but the powerful prep 
school man gathered his strength for 
the last hundred yard sprint, and 
flashed by Gray, who waned a scant 
three yards from the tape. 

The summary:

Thursday and Friday evenings, 
April 30 and May 1, the Bowdoin 
Gym Team gave an exhibition at the 
Augusta Y. M. C. A. The exhibition 
was conducted on the lines of inter- 
collegiate competition, each member 
of the team giving two pieces on his 
apparatus. Under the coaching of 
Professor Thomas Means a very fine 
show was made. The program was as 
follows: Horizontal Bar, Dana, Eaton, 
and Peabody; Side Horse, Bowman, 
Da vies, and Leavitt:; Parallel Bars, 
Colton, Dana, and Short; Rings, Col- 
ton, Eaton, and Leavitt; Mats, Ben- 
nett, Short, and Thomas; Ropes, 
Clarke, Cushman, and Thomas. 

Wesleyan played clever ball last 
Thursday to eke out a five to four 
victory over Bowdoin in a game 
played at Middletown. Ben Shute on 
the mound for the Brunswick boys 
held Wesleyan to seven hits but four 
errors bv his teammates helped con- 
tribute to the home team's victory. 
Although the Polar Bears managed 
to collect eleven base knocks off 
Sweet's slants, with the sole exception 
of the third inning they were unable 
to bunch them sufficiently enough to 
do any damage. Captain Whittier was 
the outstanding man at the bat, col- 
lecting three hits in four trips to the

In a wild and woolly ball game at . 
Waterville, April 25, Bowdoin suffered 
her first loss in the State Series to 
Colby, 13-6. Five pitchers were used 
during the afternoon, and the errors 
numbered thirteen. The eight Polar 
Bear . misplays, twelve passes divided 
equally among the three Bowdoin 
twirlers, plus seven earned hits by the 
Waterville tribe combined effectually i 
to outweigh even the smashing six I 
run rally put on in the closing minutes ! 
of the game. 

Parmenter and Ricker accounted for j 
two hits apiece. The victory put Colby | 
in the fore in the Series chase. 

Captain Whittier of the baseball 
team is "all set" for next year. After 
a trip down the Rhine in Germany 
next summer, Whit goe's to Loomis 
Academy in Connecticut to be a teach-

Sports Editor This Week: Robert L. M. Ahem '33 


This Saturday at Pickard Field the 
White baseball outfit runs encounter of 
the powerful Colby nine in their sec- 
ond tilt of the season. In view of 
Colby's 13-7 initial victory over Bow- 
doin, and their impressive wins over 
Harvard and Northeastern, they are 
expected to repeat. 

On the other hand, the Polar Bears 
will have had ample time to recuperate 
after a disheartening Spring trip, and 
the formidable pitching staff of Shute. 
Brown, Morrell. Means and Dowling 
will be in full strength. The one con- 
solation of the team's late foray into 
the South is Dave Means', '33, victory 
over Massachusetts State. Pitching 
his first varsity contest, the tousled- 
headed kid from Nebraska showed 
plentv of promise, giving seven stingy 
hits to the one-time farmers. 

Bowdoin pitching ought to be su- 
perior to the visitors' who have been 
deprived of the services of Mansfield, 
their ace of the slab, due to a split 
finger. Dowling, Freshman contribu- 
tion to the hurling staff, looked well in 
the few innings he faced Tufts at Med- 
ford last week. 

The White's stickwork has been 
faultless, for they have chalked up im- 
pressive totals over their late competi- 
tors, outhitting Tufts nearly two to 
one. Bennett, Frosh ace at the plate, 
crashed out three lively hits, includ- 
ing a ripping triple, last Saturday. Mc- 
Kown is looked to aa the long-distance 
man with the bat. while King Crim- 
mins has been showing well in this 

Few errors in fielding have been en- 
tered in the box-score against the 
Bowdoin diamondmen; possibly their 
best work was against Maine, when 
they bolstered the weakening Brown in 
the closing innings of a winning con- 
test. White plavers take heart in the 
fact that U. of M. battled the Bobcats 
for a 14-12 win last Saturday. 



Bowdoin Men Weaken in Eighth 

Allowing Prepmen to Even 

Score 9-9 

Six runs in the eighth bracket 
pulled Fryeburg Academy out of the 
mire to knot the score in a bitter 
diamond battle which ended in a 9-9 
tie in the eleventh. The Polar Bear 
jayvees were outclassed at the stick, 
clouting only six hits to the prepmen's 

Three hard-driven smashes in the 
final inning drew a blank for the 
Fryeburg crew when a long fly per- 
ished because of slow base running. 
Chadboume of the prepmen, with a 
double and two singles, and Jordan of 
the White, with a triple and two sin- 
gles, starred at the plate. 

Bowdoin established a comfortable 
margin in the sixth frame when the 
score was boosted to 8-2, but a loosely 
played eighth shattered winning 
hopes. Bemis, Fryeburg relief mounds- 
man, struck out twelve men, with 
Jordan, Bowdoin's starting hurler, col- 
lecting six fans. The game was halted 
in the eleventh inning because of the 
cold weather.

The Army track meet result was 
hardly a disappointment. Charlie 
Stanwood was admittedly the hero of 
the hour, but no less than nine wear- 
ers of the White deserve a pat on the 
back for scoring against the Cadets. 
The points yielded in the hammer, an 
event not recognized at West Point, 
were the only counters that came 
without a real battle.

Nine Hits Score as Many Runs for 

Mass. Team; Bowdoin Gets Nine 

Safe Hits 

By converting nine hits into nine 
runs, Northeastern's ball club gained 
a nine to one victory over Ben 
Houser's charges last Friday after- 
noon in a game played at Huntington 
Field, Brookline. The Bowdoin team 
did not display the clever fielding that 
gave them victories over Bates and 
Maine, presenting a very shaky de- 
fence for Lloyd Morrell's pitching. 
Although they managed to glean nine 
hits off the Huskies' ace, Corbett, the 
necessary scoring punch was lacking 
in the pinches. 

After picking up one tally in the 
first, Northeastern went on a little 
scoring spree in the third after Mor- 
rell had set the first two men down 
via the strikeout route. Nutter walked 
and Tiffany followed him with a clean 
bingle. Parmenter allowed Murray's 
drive to get by him giving both the 
men on bases an opportunity to dash 
across the rubber. A miScue by Mc- 
Kown and a base hit by Carter com- 
pleted the damage, giving the home 
team a four to nothing lead. 

Dwyer Clouts For Circuit 

The Polar Bears started doing 
things in the fourth when Sonny 
Dwyer led off with a long home run 
over right fielder Moulthrop's head. 
McKown and Rose each followed with 
singles. Bennett's bunt brought them 
around to second and third. All hopes 
were dashed here for Crimmins 
fanned and Parmenter grounded out 
to Nutter at third. Again in the sixth, 
with no one down Dwyer and McKown 
each hit safely only to remain 
stranded on the sacks for the rest of 
the inning. o 

On two hits Northeastern managed 
to get a run across the plate in both 
the sixth and the seventh. With one 
out in their last time at bat, the Hus- 
kies managed to tally three more 
times. Whittier booted Cross's roller. 
Corbett grounded to McKown but 
Presper reached the initial sack after 
Morrell tossed four bad ones across. 
A single by Nutter sent the two men 
ahead of him scurrying across the 
plate. "Herb" Tiffany crashed out a 
double to bring in the ninth and final

With their heads still bloody but 
unbowed after their severe defeat at 
the hands of West Point, the Polar 
Bear tracksters are unlimbering for 
the New Hampshire meet at Durham 
this Saturday. Advance comparisons 
of the two teams' potential strength 
shows the State men with an edge 
over Bowdoin. Times in the New 
Hampshire-Bates fracas indicate a 
Bowdoin superiority in the hurdles, 
where the Hampshire runners ex- 
celled last week, but a pronounced 
weakness in the dashes and middle 

The Bates Bobcats, rated on a par 
with the White, were taken into camp 
decisively by the Hampshireites, 79 
2-3 to 55 1-3, last Saturday. On this 
basis the Polar Bears would appear 
to stand but a slim chance; however, 
closer inspection reveals a likelihood 
of a considerably stronger team op- 
posing the erstwhile victors. 

A second in a 10.1 century was the 
best the neighboring state men could 
do, and though Jack Magee's sprint- 
ters were overwhelmed by the Cadets, 
several points are looked for in this 
event. The same situation stands in 
the furlong, with the possibility of a 
Bowdoin win. New Hampshire, with 
a second and a third in a 49.4 quarter 
tucked under their belt, looks to high 
honors in that number. 

Bowdoin Should Take Hurdles 

Having trounced the Army in both 
phases of the hurdles, the brilliant 
McLaughlin-Stanwood duet ought to 
come through again for two firsts and 
seconds. The distance looks rather 
gloomy, with a dim chance of split 
scores in the mile. Bates upset New 
Hampshire in this event, winning 
with 4:44 minutes. If Usher and his 
running mates can keep the pace, the 
White should break about even. 

The half-mile presents an enigma. 
With both of Saturday's contenders 
shut out last week in this race, ad- 
vance dope is uncertain. However, 
Usher set a burning pace last winter 
in the Interfraternity carnival, to win 
with a fast 2:01 count, so there is no 
reason why the feat can't be dupli- 
cated. Steve Lavender will find stiff 
going in the two-mile grind, which the 
Hampshiremen took over in 10 min- 
utes flat last week. 
New Hampshire Has Edge In Field 

Taken as a whole New Hampshire 
looks better — on paper — with respect 
to the field events than does Bowdoin. 
Brooks, N. H., broke a meet record 
when he soared to 12 feet 5 inches; 
but if Appleton can come through 
aided by Pope, the Frosh ace, th« 
White will divide honors. 

Matters stand more favorably in 
the high jump, pointing to almost cer- 
tain victory for Stanwood and Lar- 
sen. New Hampshire's best try was 
5 feet 6 inches, as compared to 
Charlie's leap of nearly 5 feet 10 
inches. If Dan Johnson recovers his

Extract from The Pennsylvanian of 
April 27th 
(This is the first of a series of inter- 
views with prominent coaches on the 
question of the training house.) 

John Magee, of the Olympic coach- 
ing staff for the past three years and 
coach at Bowdoin for 18 years, voiced 
himself as being strongly in favor of 
the training house. "We have had a 
training table at Bowdoin for a year 
now, and all sports have had a chance 
to use it. The results have been grati- 
fying," he said. In his opinion better 
fellowship has also been achieved 
through this system. He added that 
the athletes, who are necessarily cam- 
pus figures, belonged to the various 
fraternities and that, instead of hur- 
rying off to their respective houses for 
all their meals, they took some of 
them at the training house, conse- 
quently making closer friendships 
with the men of other fraternities. 

In a small college where fraternities 
are of paramount importance, h a . 
pointed out, this system was highly 
beneficial for the unification of the 
entire school. He explained that, with 
the Bowdoin system, the men pay for 
their meals at the table, and thus the 
question of giving undue financial 
support to the athlete was not present 
to be criticized. 

Coach Cartnell, of Penn State, also 
expressed himself in favor of the 
training table.

Many Orchestras to Play 

at Various Fraternity 



Those Chosen are Eminent 

in Many Senior Class 


Galbraith and Thistlewaite 
Records in Hammer and 
Half Mile 


New Hampshire's tracksters, after 
an even division for scoring honors in 
the running events, pulled into a 
strong lead as they took over a field- 
weak Polar Bear team last Saturday 
at Durham. 79-56. Dashman Pike of 
the Granite Statemen annexed high 
scoring honors with firsts in the dashes 
and broad jump; Stan wood tightened 
the White attack with two firsts and 
a second. 

Two New Hampshire meet records 
fell, with contestants working at top 
form under perfect weather conditions. 
Del Galbraith. Jack Magee's bid for a 
Tootell successor, clipped the hammer 
mark by nearly thirty feet when he 
sped the weight 160 feet 8 inches. 

Harry* Thistlewaite upset predictions 
as he shattered the Hampshire half- 
mile record by one^ftfth of a second, 
doing the two-lap jog in a remarkable 
1:58.3 minutes. Pike of New Hamp- 
shire tied a long standing college cen- 
tury mark when he broke the tape in 
10.1 seconds. 
Stanwood-MacLaughlin Duet Repeats 

Charlie Stanwood and his running- 
mate, Ray MacLaughlin. "did a West 
Point" on the Blue and White timber- 
men as they practically repeated their 
previous performance. Stanwood took 
the lead in the 110 yard highs and held 
it undisputed to the tape for a 15.4 
second dash; MacLaughlin slackened in 
the last three yards to take third to 
Hampshire's Whitehouse. 

But the slim Soph came back in the 
220 lows, for he stepped up in the van, 
and as he passed the century mark, he 
possessed a four-yard lead. Stanwood 
supplemented his teammate's 24.3 sec- 
ond win by placing second, trailed by 
Whitehouse at New Hampshire. 

MacLaughlin again upheld Bow- 
doin's scoring when he was edged by 
the Blue's star sprinter. Pike, in the 
furlong. Another Hampshireman. 
Harrington, boosted the visitors' point- 
age as he followed third in the 22.3 
second sprint. Coach Sweet's men 
again lion-shared the dash points as 
Pike repeated, hotly pursued by Dan 
Johnson of the White, and Burdett of 
N.H.U. The time was 10.1 seconds. 
Hot Competition in Distances 

As the starter's pistol cracked in the 
mile. Usher and Sewall. edged at the 
first corner, dropped into a close sec- 
ond-third position. The two New 
Hampshire distance men held first and 
fourth, though the entire quartet was 
well bunched for the half. With two 
laps to go. Usher passed Lazure. Blue 
leader; a moment later Sewall also ac- 
celerated to sneak bv the Hampshire- 
man. ... 

Hoping to stave off an opponent bid 
for the lead. Sewall ran outside for the 
entire third lap. as Usher maintained a 
fast pace. New Hampshire's second 
man had lagged far to the rear, though 
Lazure was close at Sewall's flying 
heels. A furlonsr after the last-lap 
warning gun Usher lengthened his 
stride perceptibly; but Lazure. three 
yards to the rear of Sewall. suddenly 
unleashed a terrific sprint, which 
hurled him past Usher and into a two- 
yard lead at the tape. Time: 4:32.2. 

Steve Lavender, slim Bowdoin two- 
miler, made a gallant bid for first hon- 
ors in his event as Demoulpied of the 
Blue strode the distance in a remark- 
able 9:55.2 minutes. Lavender hung 
at the winner's heels as a 2 : 18 half was 
clicked off; at the mile mark he was 
still struggling to maintain the pace, 
but was losing ground slowly. 

The Blue third-place man suddenly 
burst into a half -sprint and passed the

Speaker Emphasizes Adap- 
tability of Beliefs of 

"Christianity or religion at its best 
is creati veness and not imitation, adap- 
tability not an identity." said Dr. Ray- 
horn L. Zerby, of the Department of 
Biblical Literature and Religion of 
Bates College, at Sunday chapel. He 
emphasized the view of Christianity as 
something to be benefited by change 
and experience, not as revelation once 
made known and to which every j 
change is a deterioration. 

In opening his address Professor 
Zerby mentioned the comparison of the , 
word of God to a seed which is scat- 
tered by the sower. While the farmer ! 
sleeps and works the seed arrows into 
a shoot and the full head of wheat; 
grows up. Some people think that the j 
best way to be a Christian is to copy. ] 
But there is another way of lookine at 
it. If you do not see more than your 
father did, if you do not bring into the 
realm of reality more experience than 
your father did, if you do not think 
straighter than your father did, you I 
are a failure. There are two ways of ! 
looking at the Christian teaching. One 
is to regard it as a doctrine made 
known and to be kept perfect and un- 
changed, a doctrine to which every , 
change is a deterioration. The other; 
way is to look at it as a seed planted ' 
which is to sprinjr up from generation 
to generation, f romj century to century. 
This is the view point needed today. 

Think for Yourself 

It is dangerous to take a definition 
of religion and, when you find you do 
not follow it in your experience, to as- , 
sume that you are not religious. Why 
look into the retrospect entirely in re- 
ligion any more than in any other walk 
of life ? Do not let any one else deter- 
mine for vou what you should think 
for yourseTf . There are many ways of i 
thinking and many wavs that lead to 
Christianity. It is a thing that has as , 
many possibilities for development as

Once more the greatest social event 
of the year, the Ivy House Parties, 
loom on the horizon bringing with 
them the first premonitions of a clos- 
ing academic year. With the usually 
belated Maine spring at last beginning 
to show signs of life, and with the stir 
and excitement of preparation begin- 
ning to manifest themselves through- 
out the campus, the stage is being set 
for this capping climax of social ac- 

Guests will begin arriving at the 
various fraternity houses next Wed- 
nesday and some fraternities will hold 
dances that night and excursions on 
the next day, but it will not be until 
Friday that the college will hold its 
traditional Ivy exercises. On Friday 
morning, the annual Ivy Day game 
with Bates will take place. After 
lunch before an assemblage in Me- 
morial Hall the Junior Class will hear 
the class ode and will recognize va- 
rious outstanding members. Then will 
follow the touching Seniors' last 
chapel and the annual planting of the 
Ivy. The Masque and Gown will add 
their share to the gayety by present- 
ing two one-act plays. "The Lost Silk 
Hat" by Lord Dunsany, and "Wurzel- 
Flummery" by A. A. Milne In the 
evening at the Sargent Gymnasium, 
which will be decorated in a black and 
white motif with elaborate lighting ar- 
rangements, the guests will finish oft* 
the eventful day by dancing to the 
music of the well known Red Nichols 
and his band.

Lectures by Ralph H. 


Five Seniors have been selected as 
speakers for the Commencement of 
the Class of 1931, to be held in Me- 
morial Hall, Thursday, June 18. The 
five chosen, and one alternate, all 
eminent in the Bowdoin scholastic 
field, are: Albert Edward Jenkins, 
Robert Morton McFarland, Albert 
Francis Richmond, Paul Andrew 
Walker, and Francis Alfred Wingate 

Albert Jenkins has carved for him- 
self an enviable record in debating 
and public speaking, for he was a 
member of the Frosh debating team of 
'28, the Varsity debating team this 
year, and has been an active member 
of the Debating Council for three 
years. Jenkins won the Hiland Lock- 
wood prize last year for excellence in 
debating and advanced public speaking. 
Since then, he competed in the '68 
Prise Speaking last winter. He is sec- 
retary-treasurer of the class of '31, 
and in athletics has appeared in in- 
terclass track and cross-country. 
Jenkins is a member of Alpha Tau

Since the early days of spring, Don 
Potter and his men have been at work 
on new improvements for Pickard i 
Field. The work this spring consists j 
chiefly in leveling, seeding and laying j 
out a new tennis court. 

The mound that formerly occupied 
the southeast corner of the baseball | 
diamond has been removed and the ; 
ground leveled and seeded. Two other 
mounds which formerly stood at the 
entrance of the field have been re- ' 
moved. The field nearest Coffin street ! 
has been greatly enlarged and will ex- > 
tend eventually as far as the baseball ; 
diamond. It will probably be equipped j 
for soccer. 

This year the Grounds Committee \ 
hopes to save five hundred dollars to 
be used in installing a lighting sys- ! 
tern for the gridiron. This will per- j 
mit the football team to practice at ! 
Pickard Field after dark and will en- 
able them to use Whittier Field only 
for games. To install the lighting 
system, a cable would have to be laid 
from Whittier street. As this project 
is rather expensive, the lights, along 
with the proposed iron fence around 
the entire field, are still only one of 
the "hopes" of the Grounds Commit- 

Special Clay in New Court 

The most discussed improvement be- 
ing made this spring at Pickard Field 
is the new tennis court which is now 
being erected on the side of the pre*»- 
ent courts nearer the entrance. The 
floor of the court will be made of a 
special English clay which, while be- 
ing softer than concrete, will require 
less for upkeep. The court is being 
laid out by a British company who are 

Bowdoin's Art Department, under 
Professor Henry Edwin Andrews, will 
sponsor two lectures on Modern Art, 
to be delivered by Mr. Ralph H. Pier- ! 
son of New York Citv, in the main , 
lounge of the Moulton Union Monday, 
and Tuesday evenings at 8.15. 

Mr. Pierson has chosen as the sub- 
ject of his Monday night discussion 
'•What is Modern Art?": the topic of 
the lecture on Tuesday will be "Cub- 
ism". Both lectures are aimed to give 
the art students, and those who enter- 
tain an interest in the aubiect. a live- 
tter knowledge of the present trend of ( 
the modern school of art. 

Modem art will be treated from a 
general standpoint in his first talk, 
when Mr. Pierson, aided by lantern , 
slides covering the field extensively,! 
will give a protracted definition of the 
term as applied to present-day stand- ; 
ards of art. The second night, again 
using lantern illustrations, is set aside ' 
for Mr. Pierson's delineation of the in- 
tricacies of cubism, a much criticized 
but little understood field of modern 

Author of Book on Art 

"How to See Modern Pictures", a 
book by Mr. Pierson. dwells on the 
same topic as that of which he will 
speak next week. He himself stated 
that he has no definite outline for his 
lectures, consequently the scope of his 
talk will undoubtedly be extensive. 

Besides havinsr written this book. 
Mr. Pierson is preparing a second for 
artists and art students. He is asso- 
ciated with the School of Social Re- 
search in New York City. The coming 
lecturer conducts a summer class at 
Rockport, Mass., a famous art colony. 

The prospect which greets Bowdoin 
sport followers on the eve of the State 
Track Meet is not too encouraging, 
to say the least. For three years Jack 
Magee has been steadily building up 
a powerful team to regain the track 
prestige that Bowdoin enjoyed up to 
1927, when the Polar Bear basked in 
the glow of nine consecutive track 
championships. When the interfrater- 
nity meet climaxed the valuable cul- 
minative work of the fall and winter 
seasons with record-breaking and oth- 
er sterling deeds, it almost appeared 
that Jack Magee's prophecies con- 
cerning his 1931 team were fulfilled. 

But even at that time the depress- 
ing announcement had been made that 
the mid-year examination results had 
deprived the team of several first- 
rate men. Creighton Gatchell and Cap- 
tain Sid Foster of the champion Penn 
Relay quartet, the latter state quar- 
ter-mile champion, and Bill Haskell, 
a forty-foot shotputter, were among 
the heavy losses. This blow, coming 
at the crucial time, dealt a nigh- 
lethal shock to Bowdoin's prospects 
for victory in the year's objective, the 
State Meet at Orono. Soon after- 
ward the seriousness of the loss waa 
made appsrent when the White relay 
outfits were badly outclassed at the

A sharp single by Herbie Rose in the fourteenth inning of a 
baseball game with Colby here last Saturday sent Norm Brown 
scurrying across the plate with a run that put an end to the con- 
test. The score of this marathon tussle was Bowdoin 5, Colby 4. 
Lloyd Morrell remained on the mound for the White during the 
entire distance and allowed only five hits to the Colby Mules. On 
the other hand, Red Roberts, the ace in the pack of visiting ball 
tossers, was reached for thirteen base raps which included a 
double, triple" and a home run,

This fraternity, whose" aim is to 
"stimulate an interest in college 
journalism and to elevate the standard 
of the same", was founded in 1909 at 
Syracuse by Editor Sydney H. Cole- 
man and nine associates on the Syra-

Mawhinney, E. Smith, Creighton. and 
Sanger Selected by Organizations 

After elections for the officers of 
the musical clubs, their activities for 
the year ceased, with the exception of 
the band, which has been holding three 
rehearsals a week in preparation for 
plaving at the Maine State Intercol- 
legiate Track Meet to be held at the 
University of Maine next Saturday. 

The officers elected were as fol- 
lows: Richard Allen Mawhinney '33, 
manager; Eliot Smith '33, assistant 
manager; John Creighton, Jr., '32, 
leader of the Glee Club; and Richard 
Newhall Sanger '32, leader of the In 
strumental Club. 

There are plans to provide more 
trips for the musical clubs next year, 
this vear the only trip being that to 
Hartford and Boston. 

The trip of the golf team started 
with a match against Amherst Mon- 
day. The Lord Jeff team proved to 
have plenty of strength with the club 
and made a clean sweep of the score, 
winning 6-0. The closest match was 
that between the number three men, 
Gazley of Bowdoin playing Cooper of 
Amherst. Knight of Bowdoin, captain 
and manager, lost his match to the 
number one man of the Lord Jeffs 
eight and six. Batchelder, who was 
playing number two, lost his match six 
and four. As in the singles the foui- 
somes were won by large scores. 
Knight and Batchelder losing their 
best ball seven and five, and Gazley 
and Mason losing theirs six and four. 
The Polar Bears continued their bad 
start by losing to Wesleyan by the 
same score, six to nothing. The lineup 
had been changed for this match and 

; Mason played number one, losing his 
match three and two. All the scores 
showed a slight improvement over 
Monday's match. Batchelder. still 
playing number two man lost the 
match four and three. Gazley and 
Knight, playing in that order, lost 
three and two, and four and three, re- 
spectively. The best ball matches were 
won four and three and two up. 

With the Holy Cross game the team 
hit its stride and the matches were all 
even making the score three and three. 
Mason, playing number two man. and 
Batchelder won their matches, Mason 

j by one hole up, the match going to an 
extra hole, and Batchelder by five and

Frost and Sprague of the White had 
little trouble in downing Henderson

Sonny Dwyer contributed the fancy 
hitting with two singles and a home 
run. The latter came in the fifth with 
Ricker ahead of him on the bases. As 
a result of this wallop the Polar Bears 
assumed a four to one lead. The Wa- 
terville nine reduced the advantage to 
only two by virtue of three hits for a 
score in the seventh. Finally in the 
ninth Lovitt crashed out a triple with 
McNamara on base, and then scored 
on Ferguson's long fly to center field. 
Twice after that Colby managed to get 
men around to third and another time 
as far as second, but tight fielding on 
the part of the White's inner cordon, 
prevented any damage. 

Colby Starts the Scoring 

In the opening frame, Morrell 
walked McNamara and then proceeded 
to bounce the. pellet off Lovitt's back. 
The Colby lead-off man stole second 
and then scored when Ferguson 
dropped a niof bunt along the first base 
line. In the last of the same stanza 
Dwyer clouted a single, but to no avail 
for he remained fixed to the initial has- 
sock as Whittier grounded out to Rob- 
erts. The Brunswick boys threatened 
somewhat in the second when Ben 
Shute hit with one away. He ad- 
vanced a base on Pete Lewia's Texas 
leaguer over second. However, Par- 
menter forced the gabby little Bowdoin 
catcher out at second and on the first 
ball pitched Carl attempted unsuccess- 
fully to | steal. 

Dwyer Homers 

The real outbreak came in the 
fourth when McKown walked and then 
went on another base on Rose's bunt. 
Ben Shute, who was taking over King 
Crimmins' assignment at first, came 
through in the pinch with a triple. To 
prevent the rallv from petering out 
Lewia bingled and Bowdoin went into 
a one run lead. In the following 
frame, Ben Houser's boys started right 
in again. Jit Ricker led off with a 
hit. Captain Whittier sacrificed him 
along unnecessarily as was proved by 
the next nfcan. Sonny Dwyer. This 
eagle-eyed catcher and outfielder 
found one of Red's offerings just to his

This wallop gave the home club a com-

seventh, the Colby crew had only col-

Team Wins Four of Six Singles But 

Only One of Three Doubles 


In a closely fought contest at He- 
bron, the junior varsity netmen 
opened their season last Wednesday 
by defeating Hebron Academy by a 
score of five to four. Bowdoin won 
the majority of the six' singles 
matches but fell down, because of lack 
of practice, in the doubles allowing 
Hebron to take two out of the three 
encounters. Eric Loth '34, Don Bates 
'34, George Peabody '34, and Harry 
Lord '33 were the winners of the 
singles matches while Loth and Pea- 
body won the deciding doubles match. 

On Wednesday the team will meet 
Exeter at Exeter. This will prove a 
real test of the team's ability, for 
Exeter has one of the best prep school 
teams in New England. Next Satur- 
day they will meet Hebron on the 
home courts. 

The complete score of last Wednes- 
day's match was as follows: 

Loth, Bowdoin, (6-2, 9-7) vs. Hus- 
ton, Hebron.

Clubs — Moribund and Otherwise 

This week we return to our examination of Bowdoin's extra- 
curricular organizations, with a review of conditions in the de- 
partmental clubs. The picture is not altogether a cheering one 
though in some quarters there is more activity than is outwardly 
visible. L'Ours Blanc has been, perhaps, the most active of this 
group during the past year, having held meetings once a month 
at which speakers, in many cases from outside the College, have 
addressed the club, and at which members of the club have pre- 
sented papers on pertinent subjects. Jt is interesting to note that 
enthusiasm for the activities of L'Ours Blanc comes entirely from 
within its undergraduate membership, no connection being main- 
tained with the French department of the College, so that while 
nominally it is a departmental club, such is not actually the case. 
Although it performs no distinct service to the College as a whole, ! 
one is led to believe that the French club is serving a useful pur- 
pose — undoubtedly what should be the chief purpose of such an 
organization — in fostering interest in French among its mem- 
bers. Possibly it might go a bit farther toward contributing 
something to the life of the College as a whole, by giving a public 
lecture or two during the year, or something of a kindred nature 
calculated to arouse interest in its particular field. But in this 
case undoubtedly the main function is the drawing together of 
men with kindred interests into a group solid enough to achieve 
something for their own benefit and enjoyment. 

The -Classical Club, while temporarily less active than the 
French Club, still has a record not to be slighted. In this case 
members of the faculty are closely connected with the club and 
lend a stimulus to its activity. Perhaps L'Ours Blanc could profit 
from a similar connection; we only suggest it, for after all it is 
none of our business. While its meetings have been rather infre- 
quent, the club has nevertheless rendered a distinct service to the 
College community by sponsoring a public lecture by an outside 
authority on the classics. 

The Mathematics Club meets at more or less regular intervals 
for discussion of special topics. Here again the club is closely con- 
nected with the facuUy of its department. In this case it is much 
harder* to interest the general student body in the subject con- 
sidered, and the club doubtless fulfills its ends best as it now 
carries on. 

Now we come to the Government Club, organized apparently 
for no better purpose than to take up space in the Bugle. Of all I 
the department clubs, this one is in perhaps the best position to 
render real service to the College as a whole. But the Government 
Club never meets any more, and as a body exists only on paper. If , 
Bowdoin is to have such a club, why doesn't it do something to 
justify its existence, or give up altogether and acknowledge frank-, 
ly its failure to hold interest in political and governmental prob- 
lems? Either let the club fulfill some end or die a natural death — 
BO one at present would mourn its passing. As things now stand, ! 
the club is wasting a great opportunity. It might do any number j 
of things to focus interest on present-day political and govern- j 
mental problems. It might serve as the basis for a campus liberal j 
organization — or is Bowdoin afraid of such things? It might 
bring speakers here to discuss current trends and topics. It was ' 
at one time suggested that it form the basis for a local chapter of j 
the N.S.F.A. — nothing came of that. And so we say, let the j 
Government Club reorganize and do something, or die entirely and 
stop trying to keep up a semblance of life. 

Deutscher Verein apparently is dead in fact, whether from the 
apathy of students or faculty, or both, we neither know nor care. 
Unless it can bring real interest to a small group at least, it is best 
that it lie in peace. 

The situation in Bowdoin's so-called departmental clubs might 
be worse — it might be much better. It seems to us that such a 
group should be organized with the primary object of keeping alive 
among its members an interest in its particular subject, and of 
furnishing them with a common meeting ground. So long as it 
does these things its existence is justified, but when it ceases to 
fulfill its functions in this respect it should be discontinued utterly 
or find new interests. Anything which it contributes to the Col- 
lege community as a whole, though really outside its immediate 
domain, is commendable and decidedly to be encouraged. 

is concerned. Furthermore, were activity in this league to be the 
chief aim of the Bowdoin team, student interest and support 
would be decidedly cut into by the difficulties of getting to games. 
It seems to us that Bowdoin's wiser course in this matter would be 
to continue her southern baseball relations as heretofore, and con- 
tinue to concentrate more upon the Maine State series, with col- 
leges which are her chief rivals in other fields of sport. Such a 
system lightens the burden of lost time on the part of the team and 
apparently tends to hold student interest more satisfactorily, 
which, in the long run, should be an important factor. 

But if Bowdoin elects to follow such a course, we have a few 
suggestions regarding the Maine series. An occurrence in last 
Saturday's game brought home to us certain rather striking faults 
in the present situation. In Bowdoin's half of the ninth inning, 
with the score tied and men on first and third, Roberts, Colby 
pitcher, committed what was apparently a balk. The umpire re- 
fused to allow Coach Houser's protest on the grounds that he was 
not watching the pitcher at the time. Had the balk been allowed, 
each man would have advanced a base and the game would have 
been won then and there. After the game it was generally held by 
both sides that such a balk had been committed. 

This brings us face to face with the need for some regularly 
constituted central body to which, in the eventuality of a game's 
being lost through such an event, protests could be carried. As at 
the present time, we are given to understand that the Maine 
league is entirely mythical and has no definite organization. Be- 
cause of this there are no official batting averages or league stand- 
ings nor is there any official body of fixed rules and regulations. 
At one time last season three entirely different league standings 
were published simultaneously in Maine newspapers. 

Now, if Bowdoin elects to remain in the Maine series, we sug- 

gest that she take the lead in organizing the league under a cen- 
tral board of control. Such a course will permit of official league 
standing, official box scores and batting averages, and all the other 
advantages of organized baseball.

The Baseball Situation 
Recently the Williams Record sent out a questionnaire to a 
number of New England colleges, chiefly with the aim of getting 
information regarding the establishment of a New England col- 
lege baseball league. Of the institutions considered Bowdoin is 
the northernmost and rather distantly removed from most of the 
others. This in itself is of no great significance provided the ath-j 
letics department can bear the expense of competing in such a 
league. However, it must not be forgotten that the rather ex-| 
tended trips necessitated by membership in such a league would 
work a decided hardship on the players as far as scholastic work ]

any other thing. 

On the peninsular of Italy no doubt 
every mother thought she was teach- 
ing her child the same language she 
spoke, but as centuries passed the lan- 
guage developed and the languages 
differed from classical Latin. So reli- | 
gion changes under the influences of 
changing time. It must be restated 
in the medium of thought expression 
of our day. To the men to whom Chris- 
tianity was first revealed, the world 
was a meek, flat, plain earth. The 
stars and the sun were SDecially cre- 
ated for the benefit of man. A scientist 
recently said that the human race is 
like the moving of magots. living on 
the dust of a decadent globe. The God 
for the* flat, meek earth is not adequate 
for the kind we live on. 

Rome Was Not Built in a Day 

There are two responses to this 
need. One is to throw the whole thing 
out of the window, but there is the 
danger of throwing the baby out with 
the bath. The very radical thinkers 
propose to build the whole thing up 
anew, but it cannot be done. What- 
ever has life is rooted and grounded in 
the past. Would you throw away all 
the experience of years of experimen- 
tation with governments? The civili- 
zation in which our religion has grown 
and out of which the basic aspects 
of Christianity have grown must be 
used as a basis of experience. It must 
be criticized, thought about, and di- 

Faith should be not a belief in a per- 
fection once revealed but a confidence 
that when we have done right the 
processes of the world will continue 
this righteousness. Religion demands 
this kind of faith. It is an adaptabil- 
ity, not an identity. Jesus believed in 
the universe this way. He called God 
"Father". The people with whom he 
lived saw a king only once in a while. 
His influence was slight and seldom. 
The father lives in the home all the 
time. His work goes on, whether you 
notice it or not, carrying your own for- 
ward. Will faith be an imagined reve- 
lation or steady growing processes, 
carrying forward your own hopes? 
Look for the inspiration which will 
grow up in you yourself. __ 

Do Not Live Within Yourself 

Bring yourself first of all, and then 
others, to use your own strength and 
character and to thrust yourself out 
into the world. Do not cringe and 
whimper beneath the shelter of a self- 
built house. I believe in a God. Not 
the God that is defined in narrow terms 
but one on whom humanity must de- 
pend. There is a tragic and pathetic 
defiance of the world among some of 
our intellectual and religious leaders. 
I heard a great humanist say once, 
"We have only each other, you know." 
He said it with the half-haunting fear 
of a man who realizes forces beyond 
him and his self -built world that may 
at any time throw over his house of 


Charting tomorrow's telephone needs 

Looking ahead — laying a firm founda- 
tion for tomorrow's telephone service 
— has long been a keystone policy of 
the Bell System. 

To illustrate: business starts creeping 
into a residential district — a sign that 
greatly increased telephone facilities will 
be required. Through intensive studies, 
commercial engineers forecast the needs 

of five or more years hence with scien- 
tific accuracy. Additional exchanges, 
cable ducts, equipment of all kinds are 
planned and built. When the call comes 
the telephone company is ready. 

So long as the nation continues to 
change and grow, the plotting of its fu- 
ture telephone needs will never grow 
dull. The opportunity is there!

Plans to Avoid Conflict of Sports 

with Scholastic Duties and to 

Reduce Games Away 

In order to minimize the increasing 
difficulties in scholastic requirements 
now burdening students engaged in 
athletics, the Harvard Athletic Com- 
mittee is endeavoring to adjust its 
intercollegiate schedulings so that 
they will conform to the alterations 
of the educational programme of the 

During the past two years no in- 
tercollegiate contests have been sched- 
uled during the mid-year examina- 
tion period, while practice during this 
same time has been reduced to a 
minimum. As the divisional exami- 
nations in May are periods of exces- 
sive strain on Seniors, athletic con- 
tests are also omitted during the week 
in which these examinations are held. 
Recent efforts have been made, more- 
over, to eliminate all trips during the 
spring and winter reading periods and 
to decrease as far as possible the num- 
ber of contests formerly held in Cam- 
bridge at these periods. ~ 

The Athletic Committee has 
brought about a gradual diminution in 
the number of trips taken by any 
team, while the length of time away 
from the university on these trips has 
also been lessened. A rule has re- 
cently been passed whereby no Fresh- 
man team can go on more than two 
t trips during a season and cannot en- 
gage in any athletic contest outside of 
New England. In addition to these 
changes it is planned to eliminate all 
trips during the spring vacation. The 
committee decided to take this step 
first of all because Seniors who are 
studying for divisional examinations 
do not care to participate in such trips 
and, secondly, because the enlarged 
indoor facilities and the increasing 
number of available opponents in the 
vicinity of Cambridge have rendered 
these trips unnecessary for the proper 
development of the teams.

their opponents one up on the nine- 
teenth hole, and Knight and Mason 
lost two and one. 

Against M.I.T. Thursday Bowdoin 
again showed strength and the score 
was even, three and three. The long- 
est and closest match of the trip was 
won bv Mason on the twenty-first hoi*. 
The other Bowdoin man to win the 
singles was Gazley who won three and 
two. Knight and Batchelder both lost 
one up on the nineteenth hole. The 
fourth match of Thursday afternoon's 
playing to go an extra hole was lost 
by Knight and Mason on the nine- 
teenth. Batchelder and Gazley. the 
two freshmen on the trip won their 
best ball match three and two. 

The last match of the trip was 
played with Tufts Friday with several 
bad breaks. Tufts insisted that the 
contract called for a six-man team and 
the result was that Plaisted. the al- 
ternate man. was put into match and 
Batchelder was forced to play against 
the best ball of the number five and six 
men. Knight won the first match three 
and two. Mason and Gazlev lost their 
matches in the order named two down 
and three and two. Plaisted lost the 
number four match seven and six. 
Batchelder playing number five 
won his match one up on the 
eighteenth. Batchelder played against 
the best ball of number five and six of 
the Tufts team, losing one up on the

Fred Brice and his Orono boys set 
down the White by a twelve to two 
count in a rather one-sided contest 
played at Maine last Wednesday. Al 
Perkins, twirling for the Pale Blue, 
stole the greater portion of the lime- 
light. Not only did this slim south- 
paw limit Ben Houser's charges bo 
three one base knocks but he crashed 
out three hits himself and tallied an 
equal number of times. Al was a 
much improved pitcher over what he 
was when he first faced Bowdoin this 
season. At that time he was touched 
for nine hits and four runs. Blondy 
Hincks was another one of the home 
boys who did some fancy work with 
the bludgeon. As usual Jit Ricker was 
all over the outfield and in the course 
of the afternoon he succeeded in pull- 
ing down eight stray balls that were 
wafted to the outer garden. 

Ben Shute went the entire route for 
the Polar Bears and after the fourth 
he was touched quite frequently by 
the sluggers of the Pale Blue. How- 
ever, during those first frames a real 
pitcher's battle waged. Each team 
scored in the second. McKown crossed 
the plate after being passed to first 
and sacrificed around. Hits by Whit- 
tier and Shute and a sacrifice by Rick- 
er scored the Bowdoin captain in the 
third and gave the White a slim ad- 
vantage. But from that time until the 
eighth, the Polar Bears went hitless, 
in fact Perkins set them down in one, 
two, three order. A trio of clean base 
raps were responsible for as many 
scores in Maine's half of the fifth. The 
home club added one more tally in the 
sixth and then the following inning 
found them on the rampage. With 
one down, Kisjonak singled. To make 
things interesting Abbott poked the 
agate out into left for a home run. 
Halgren, who followed him, tripled 
and Lewis walked. Hincks flied out 
to Ricker but McKown booted one of 
Frost's drives, allowing Halgren to 
score. Smith cleaned the bases with a 
four base smash to make a total of 
six runs for the frame. The final 
Maine score came in the eighth on a 
hit by Kisjonak, a pass to Abbott, and 
another miscue by McKown. 

While his teammates were hammer- 
ing the offerings of Shute, Perkin- 
was mowing down all who faced him. 
A fast ball pitcher, this lefty buzzed 
them over the rubber with such deft 
that the Brunswick boys were swing- 
ing wildly. Before the game was 
over, Perkins had fanned fourteen

In one of the weirdest games that 
has ever been played here in the In- 
terfraternity League, the Kappa Sig- 
ma team trounced the Betas by the 

count of 42 to 1. Twenty-five hits and 
ten errors were the factors that aided 
the Kappa Sigs in their one sided vic- 
tory. While the Harpswell street boya 
were poking the agate all around the 
lot, Gil Barstow, their moundsman, 
was holding the opposition to four 
scattered little bingles. The winning 
team managed to score in every in- 
ning with the runs mounting into the 
double figures in the second and the 
sixth. The heaviest work with the 
willow was contributed by Bakanow- 
sky who slashed out four hits which 
included a double and a triple.

this relationship is to take care first

accounts for the fact that our num-

The one dissenting note in the re- 
plies was as follows: "Of the number 
34 (college' men employed in 1930), 
only nine are still with us, so you see 
the plan of employing men right from 
college has not worked out so suc- 
cessfully in our organization. Our 
greatest success with college men has 
been with those who have been out of 
school for one or two years. They

Clean Fielding and Fine 
Pitching Feature Air- 
tight Game 

Bowdoin Junior Varsity was de- 
feated at Bridgton last Wednesday 
5-3 in a great ball game. Not only 
did both nines play air-tight baseball 
the whole distance but the opposing 
hatters were able to collect only seven 
hits for each team. Johnny Kelly, 
hurling for the Academy outfit, struck 
out eighteen men, including every 
Polar Cub but Arno Koempel, who 
garnered two doubles from the Kelly 

Koempel led off for Bowdoin with a 
two-base hit, but was marooned when 
Bossidy, Perkins, and Hempel struck 
out in order. Perna grounded out to 
Hempel to open Bridgton's first in- 
ning, and Powers fanned, but Borden 
singled and stole second. Noseworthys 
foul fly was nabbed by Miller to retire 
the side. 

Kelly then set down Stone, Griffin, 
and Kelley of Bowdoin, giving six 
consecutive strikeouts. Marl Molt 
rapped out a two bagger with one out 
in Bridgton's half of the second, but 
Costello and Crowley grounded out to 
the infield. 
Koempel's Second Double Scores Two 

Nate Miller hit safely to open Bow- 
doin's third inning. Art Jordan's sin- 
gle sent Miller on to third, and Jordan 
stole second on the play following. 
Arno KoemDel, head of the Cubs' 
batting order, poled out his second 
two-base hit of the day, driving home 
both Miller and Jordan. Bossidy hit 
a single, but was caught napping at 
first base, and Kelly choked off the 
rally by fanning Perkins and Hempel. 

Bridgton's first bid came in the 
sixth inning. Perna hit for two bases 
and stole third. Powers took first base 
when hit by a pitched ball, and stole 
second. Ollie Borden cleared the bases 
with a clean hit, and proceeded to 
steal second, third, and home between 
pitches to put Bridgton ahead 3-2. 
Noseworthy, Grennell, and Molt went 
out on pop flies to end the inning. 

Costello singled in the eighth, start- 
ing another fruitful inning for the 
home club. Crowley's sacrifice ground- 
er to Bossidy advanced the runner to 
third base, and Pitcher Kelly drew a 
base on balls, going to second on the 
next pitch. Perna grounded out to 
Jack Griffin at second, but Costello 
scored. Kelly tallied on Powers' hit, 
but Powers died at second base when 
Borden grounded out to the pitcher. 

The final scoring was done in Bow- 
doin's half of the eighth. Koempel got 
to first when hit by a pitched ball, 
but expired trying to reach third on 
Bossidy's hit. Perkins walked and 
Hempel came through with a two-base 
hit, advancing Perkins to third and 
scoring Bossidy. But the rally was 
cut short when Crowley caught 
Stone's line drive and doubled Perkins 
at third. There was no further scor-

Thistlewaite Does Fast Half 

Harry Thistlewaite sped over the 
chalk, unchallenged in a brilliant 
1:58.3 minute half-mile. The erstwhile 
quartermiler made a dash for the pole 
as the run started, with Usher, winded 
after the mile, close behind. A speedy 
quarter handed a scant lead to the 
Bowdoin leader, while Usher contented 
himself with a distant third. 

Before reaching the third bend, 
Thistlewaite widened his stride, and 
with quickened leg action, drew away 
from the following Noyes of N.H.U. 
and Usher. The latter, as if inspired 
by his teammate's sudden kick, forged 
past the Blue's lone hope, and into a 
goodly second. Thistlewaite cantered 
down the homestretch with a safe ten 
yards between him and Usher, and a 
heartening gap between him and 

High Jump Scoring Split 

Charlie Stan wood, Bowdoin 's ace at 
the vertical leap, knotted with Wooley 
and Brooks, both of New Hampshire 
U, in a jump of 5 feet 101 inches. All 
three clipped the bar when an addi- 
tional half-inch was added, though 
Stanwood has done almost an inch bet- 
ter, and Wooley holds the N. H. rec- 
ord at nearly six feet. 

Francis Appleton, though weakened 
by a recent illness, split a second place 
with White of Hampshire, with 
Brooks, also of the Blue, soaring 12 
feet for first. The Frosh stellar per- 
former, Thurm Larsen. placed second 
in the sixteen pound shot, with Sears- 
mouth, N.H., hurling the iron ball 49 
feet 91 inches. 

Bowdoin's remaining fieldwork was 
attended to by Gordon Briggs and Dan 
Johnson, who drew second and third in 
a 22 foot 2 inch broad jump; Olsen who 
placed third in both the discus and 
javelin; and "Doc" Brown, who supple- 
mented Galbraith's record-smashing 
hammer heave, with a third place in 
the event.

son wafted a long fly to Ricker in cen- 
ter. In the last half of this frame the 
White worked a man around to third 
base. Then, with the winning run 
hanging in the balance, Houser and 
the Bowdoin team delayed the ball 
game for a few minutes to argue with 
the umpire on a balk by Roberts that 
appeared quite obvious. 

Rose Breaks Up Game 

As the game went into three extra 
innings, both pitchers seemed to hit 
their stride, for the hits were few and 
far between. The fourteenth came 
around with Whittier stepping into a 
fast high one for a single. On the run 
down to first Whit injured his ankle 
and Charley Heddericg glanced over 
the Bowdoin bench for a pinch-runner. 
Unwittingly, he selected Norm Brown, 
the chunky twirler. This man galloped 
to second on Dwyer's sacrifice bunt. 
McKown lifted a high fly which Davan 
got under for a put-out. Then Herbie 
Rose pulled the hero act by clicking 
out a hit which enabled Norm, travel- 
ing with all the speed and power of an 
express train, to tally the deciding 

One rather exceptional thing about 
the game was that Ben Shute, on first, 
figured in twenty-eight put-outs, or 
two out of every three. The entire 
Bowdoin infield played great ball, with 
Carl Parmenter perhaps standing out. 
Th£ most sensational play of the after-

Morale Still Excellent 

In his address to the boys directly 
following this trip, however, Coach 
Magee pictured the situation frankly 
to the team and enlisted the pledge 
of each and every individual in the 
group to bear up and carry on. The- 
future was to see a communal pool- 
ing of sacrifices and efforts, so to 
speak, to renew the power and tha 
morale of the team, and the results 
have been apparent. The Army team, 
one of the greatest in the history of the 
Military Academy, over-powered the 
Polar Bear runners, but a week later 
took over the vaunted Boston College 
outfit by a greater margin. Last week 
at Durham the Bowdoinites again ran 
up against stiff opposition in New 
Hampshire University, but scored one 
more point against the Wildcats than 
Bates had done the week previous. In- 
cidentally, the N.H.U. men worked 
much harder on Jack Magee's lads 
than on the Garnet tribe the week 
before, as the various times prove. 

Next Friday the team leaves for 
Orono with some of the running power 
of the campus still left. Notwithstand- 
ing his crippled condition, the Polar 
Bear is making the trip in a very 
scrappy mood. The coach is still 
optimistic, and has guaranteed to pro- 
duce a hard fighting aggregation. 

Powerful Opposition 

A dope sheet is, at best, a poor way 
to win a track meet, and the experts 
have produced a multiplicity of dif- 
j ferent guesses as to the result of this 
year's battle. A reliable source figures 
{ the real battle for first to be between 
! Maine and Bates, the Orono clan be- 
I ing given 43 points and our Lewis- 
ton neighbors 41. Bowdoin, in this 
• rating, is allotted 33, and Colby trails 
| with 18 points. This rating balances 
I the performances of the various teams 
! this year, distributing the doubtful 
I margins fairly evenly. Maine is 
i granted several points on the strength 
j that the meet will be in her own back 
I yard. 

Because of the high calibre of Bow- 
i doin's opposition this year, there is 
J little possibility of a superiority com- 
i plex among the Magee outfit. Another 
i result of this factor is that the char- 
acter of the opposition has veiled even 
the outstanding performances of the 
Bowdoin athletes on certain occasions. 
For this reason the work of the Bruns- 
wick contingent will loom up large at 
Orono. And, there is Jack Magee's 
parting shot: "We have gone up be- 
fore on many occasions and won when 
we were conceded only a slight 

'Anything y'want Pressed?' 

Give it to 


do the work 

One conquest conceded Bowdoin in 
the State meet is Del Galbraith's first 
place in the hammer throw. Del's ef- 
fort of 160 feet 8 inches was a top- 
notch feature of the track meet Satur- 
day, for the college record at New 
Hampshire is 131 feet » inches. Doug- 
las of the Wildcats beat that mark 
Saturday, incidentally, but as he did 
not win the event, a new record was 
not allowed, contrary to custom as re- 
gards field events.

Polar Bears Leading Until Last Event, Discus, When 

Pale Blue Scores Sweep; Olson Springs 

Surprise in Javelin Heave 


The Black and White contingent swept onto a rain-soaked and 
muddy portion of Orono last Saturday and proceeded to battle its 
way to within a scant 1 1-3 points of the winning total aggregated 
by the University of Maine, the defending champion of three years. 

The victory for the Brown Bear did not materialize until three 
stalwart Orono men made a clean sweep of the discus throw, the 
final event of the day. 

Bates, favored to win, ceased scoring abruptly when the fiat 
races were over and the White hopes began to rise when the 
McLaughlin-Stanwood duet had garnered sixteen out of the pos- 
sible eighteen points in the hurdles. 

The sogginess of the Maine track which is considered a fast 
track, forestalled any record-breaking feats by the brilliant field of 
runners. Webb of Maine hung up the solitary record of the meet 
by his 12 ft. 1 in. effort in the pole vault. 



Formal and Informal Dances, Picnics, Outings and Tra- 
ditional Exercises Will Provide Colorful Program 
for Coming Week End 


George Sewall took third place in 
the mile and thereby snatched the first 
disputed point of the scoring. As had j 
been previously broadcast, Viles and I 
Chapman ran in that order to lead.the j 
Bowdoin contestant. Larry Usher and j 
Sewall were right behind the Garnet \ 
pair after the initial sprint for posi- ; 
tion, and there they stayed. At the | 
half mile mark "Ossie" Chapman was 
leading the mud-bespattered trio of 
Viles, Usher and Sewall, with the rest 
of the field strung- out twenty yards 

Sewall Gets Third 

On the last lap the Bates) men strode 
out shoulder to shoulder and Sewall 
left his teammate behind to follow 
closely. Viles came home with a 
strong: sprint to the tape, while Chap- 
man strode easily to second place, and 
was nearly caught from behind by 6. 
Tingey at the finish. The time, 4 min- 
utes, 30 1-5 seconds, was ample proof 
of the handicap Viles met in the 
muddy footing-. 

Perhaps the prettiest running exhi- 
bition from the bystander's point of 
view was that given by "Gil" Adams of 
Bates in the quarter mile. This boy 
has developed one of those tireless 
looking strides that seems capable of 
almost any clip. In the first trial heat 
he led Pendleton of Maine with ease. 
Then in the following race, Hodkiewicz 
of Colby breasted the finish line just 
to the fore of Harry Thistlewaite, the 
Bowdoin captain. The other two quali- 
fiers were Williams of Colby and Mc- 
Kinirv of Maine. After due thought 
and deliberation. Jack Magee withdrew

In a speech before the Portland 
Bowdoin Club on May 14, President 
Sills predicted that there would soon 
be an attempt to eliminate the classi- 
cal languages as requirements for a 
Bachelor of Arts degree. He said that 
the same arguments that were being 
used to eliminate the classical lan- 
guages would, in less than fifteen 
years, be applied to the modern lan- 
guages also. The main argument, for 
the elimination of the classical lan- 
guages is that they are now being 
taught for their cultural, rather than 
practical benefits. Greek. President 
Sills went on to say. is taught in only 
a few Maine high ;chools. Failure to 
offer this studv. when full courses in

The Rev. Ebenezer Bean, the oldest 
Bowdoin alumnus and perhaps the ; 
oldest Congregational minister in the 
coun tr y, died May 16 in Walnut Hill, , 
Me., after having reached an age of j 
nearly one hundred and two. In spite 
of his ripening years, he kept in ex- 
ceptionally close connection with the 
college in the last few years. 

Leading an active life at all times, 
the Rev. Bean was not confined to his 
bed until last Wednesday. His death 
is a distinct loss to Bowdoin, for he 
played an exceptionally busy role in 
college affairs at all times in his life. 
Offering recommendations and sug- 
gestions, serving on committees, and 
attending alumni reunions without 
fail until the last few years, his in- 
terest w-as a faultless example set 
by a man whose life was given up to 
the help of the unfortunate. The fu- 
neral services were held at the First 
Congregational Church in Gray where 
he was the pastor for twenty-seven 
years of his life. 

Inusually Active Life 

Mr. Bean was born on a farm in 
Conway, X. H., July 20, 1K29, where 
his grandmother had settled as one o£ 
the first persons in that section. Ho 
received his preliminary education in 
his native t<>v.-n and then attended 
Bridgton Academy. Upon graduation 
from this institution he entered Bow- 
doin in the class of '57. 

When he had received his degree 
here, he returned to Bridgton when 
he taught for a year and became prin- 
cipal for a period of two years. He 
then entered Bangor Theological 
Seminary, from which he graduated in 

He was then called to the pastorate 
of the Congregational Church in DeX- 
ter, where he was ordained and where 
he served for one year. In 1862 he 

(Continued on page 2) 

Advance dope, no matter how care- j 
fully compiled from comparative ; 
scores, nine times out of ten is wrong j 
in the final outcome; yet track times 
and field distances, matched with one 
another, can give a surprisingly sure 
indication of what may ultimately re-, 
suit. Thus: Holy Cross, 32J; New; 
Hampshire, 29i; Bowdoin, 24i; Bates, 
20; Maine, 14J; Northeastern, 13i; 
M. I. T., .11; and so on down to Con- , 
necticut Aggies, who are slated to re- 
ceive only a lone counter. 

The Polar Bear tracksters rate 
their exalted position largely by vir- 
tae of Stanwood and McLaughlin, that 
dependable duet of timber-striders. 
Compared times allots first to Stan- 
wood, and fourth to McLaughlin in 
the highs; vice versa in the lows. To 
be sure, times matched in both events 
reveal an uncomfortably hot bit of j 
competition for the Whitemen. Powers 
of Northeastern has turned in 15 3-5 
in this race, a scant 1-10 slower than 
Charlie's best; McDonnell of Holy 
Cross shows the same fast clocking. 

MacKenzie, also of Northeastern, 
will drive Ray McLaughlin to the 
limit, having chalked up a 24 4-5 
(setting a new eastern New England 
Intercollegiate mark) to be shaded 
only the slightest by Bowdoin's fleet 
star Stanwood has a fighting chance 
to break into a third in the lows, | 
should he nose out McDonnell, wh« 
shows a time of 25 seconds flat. 

Thistlewaite Has Chance in Half 

Nobody will beat Chapman in his 
half-mile specialty, for he has set up 
a 1.53 in the IC4A Which New Eng- 
land runners will shoot at for years 
to come. But Harry Thistlewaite, 
despite his edging by Mank of Main* 
last Saturday, should, given a clear 
day and a dry track, better his 1.58 
3-5 made at Durham two weeks ago. 
Mank's best effort was a l.o'.t 2-5 
which he clicked off in the M. I. T. 
dual meet. Holy Cross's Cuneo 
stands, by comparative figuring, a bare 
1-5 second behind the Maine man. 

The vertical leap should see a se- 
quel to the battle waged two weeks 
ago at Durham, when Charlie Stan- 
wood and Wooley, N. H., knotted at 
5 feet 10 J inches. Close at their heels 
is Coon of M. I. T., with a leap of 
5 feet 10i inches to his credit, made 
when the engineers clashed with 
Maine. McNally, Holy Cross jumper, 
threatens seriously with his 5 feet 
10 inches flat.

Two short comedies will be the 
Masque and Gown's contribution to 
the Ivy Day festivities this year. 
Their first presentation will be the 
whimsical one act piece, "Wurzel- 
Flummery" by the British humorist 
Alfred Alexander Milne, formerly an 
associate editor of the "Punch". The 
second the "Lost Silk Hat" is by the 
well known Irish playwright Lord 
Dunsany. The plays will be pre- 
sented in the Cumberland theatre at 
4.10 on Friday. 

. J. Frank Carpenter '32 will ap- 
pear in the leading role of "Wurzel- 
Flummery" as Robert Crawshaw, a 
typical successful B/itish politician 
whose self-importance and ways of 
thought are cleverly portrayed by the 
author. Margaret his wife, will be 
played by Mrs. John C. Thalheimer 
while Mrs. Ralph De Someri Childs 
will appear as Viola his daughter. 
The part of Richard Meriton^i young 
politician on the opposition and a 
lover of Viola, will be assumed by 
Albert W. Tarbell '32. Stanley D. 
1'inkham '31, will handle the short 
but difficult role of Denis Clifton, "a 
writer of unsuccessful farces." 

The action of the play deals chiefly 
with the complications resulting front 
the will of a certain Antony Clifton. 
Robert Crawshaw receives a legacy 
from the will of 50,000 pounds on con- 
dition that he will assume the prepos- 
terous name, of Wurzel-Flummery.' A 
struggle takes place within him as his 
desire for the money encounters his 
fear of appearing ridiculous before 
the nation. Finally, a mental 
mechanism, called rationalization by 
psychologists comes to his rescue and 
he decides that "it is a sacred trust" 
and a public duty to accept the money. 
Richard Meriton who had been too 
poor to marry Viola receives a similar 
bequest and the two opponents are 
left with the same name. 

"The Lost Silk Hat" 

"The Lost Silk Hat" is somewhat 
shorter than "Wurzel Flummery", 
but it has in parts a more serious 
tone as one would expect of a drama 
from the pen of Dunsany. It tell.- 
the story of a caller, who having 
rushed into the street after a quarrel 
with his loved one, finds that he ha;" 
forgotten his silk hat. To return for 
the hat would be an absurd anti- 
climax to his frenzied departure. To 
walk about the streets of London hat- 
less seems to him just as bad. He

Ben Houser's Polar Bears must 
face the Bates Bobcats on Ivy Day, 
at Pickard Field in a crucial league 
contest. State chances for the White - 
men, which looked splendid after the 
gruelling fourteen inning win over 
Colby over a week ago, were rudely 
shattered when the latter outfit slipped 
under the wire for a 2-1 victory last 

The revamped Bowdoinmen ap- 
peared at their best as they offered an 
air-tight brand of baseball to the 
Mules; and only an unfortunate chain 
of events robbed them of the win and 
handed the sunberth to Colby last Fri- 
day. In nearly every one of the very 
recent league tussles, Bowdoin has 
outhit its opponent, only to lose on 
a fluke. 

Erratic and inconsistent perform- 
ance has marked most of the Polar 
Bear games; Bowdoin's league stand-

urged by a win over a team that 
spelled sure . defeat, or a battle 
dropped to an outfit that

will make presentations to various 
outstanding members of the class. 
William Lawrence Usher who was 
elected most popular man by th3 
Junior Class last winter will receive 
a wooden spoon while others will be 
honored in like fashion. Harris Mer- 
rill Plaisted will deliver an oration 
dealing with the problems arising 
from the expansion of industry, and 
the value of a irollege education in 
coping with them. George Tingey 
Sewall, class poet, will render some 
of his verse.

will plant the traditional ivy and sing 
the class ode composed by Melcher 
Prince Fobes with music by Henry

Sloan Does Cover Design for 

Gay Issue of Independent 


Bowdoin Will Enter Six Men With 

Large Opportunity of Holding 


The tennis team will enter six men 
in the State tennis meet which is to 
be held on the Bowdoin Courts on May 
2.j and 2t>. The same men who went 
on the spring trip will probably makt 
up the team. These men are: Captain 
Abbott '31, D. C. Perkins "31, M. L. 
L. Short '32, E. G. Baker *33, A. W. 
Fmst '33, It. M. Sprague "32. 

Since there are six singles matches, 
all of these men will play. There 
may, however, be a slight change in 
the composition of the doubles teams 
which will play the required thr««- 
doubles matches. Bates ami Colby 
have also entered teams, and Bowdoin 
has a very good chance of repeating 
its victory of two years ago, wh. ■ 
the last State meet was held. 

For the third time since its initial 
appearance last Christmas, the Bow- 
doin Growler approaches a generally 
staid, sad, sober old Polar Bear, and 
tickles him vigorously in the ribs. 
Gayer than ever before, more spark- 
ling in its wittv appeal, and brighter 
in its design, this independent student 
publication will be on the Bowdoin 
campus on Ivy Day. Friday. 

Christy Moustakis, editor of the 
third issue, takes the guiding reins of 
tiie comic magazine from Georg e T. 
Sewall, and is the producer of an issue 
that bids fair even to surpass the first 
numbers. It is entirely student writ- 
ten, with a cover design bv Don Sloan 
'32. who has been delighting Growler 
leaders with his amusing sketches. 

There will be more cartoons than 
heretofore, i. umbering among them 
several full-page wash-drawings by 
Sloan and Iiassett. both of whom have 
had material printed in previous is- 
sues. Besides these laree c.-mic 
sketches are many smaller half-page 
ami column drawings and rarioons.

Ivy Day 

Once again it becomes our privilege to welcome guests to a 
Bowdoin houseparty — to Ivy, the climax of the spring program. 
And so we extend to you the heartiest greetings, and hope that you 
may get full measure of enjoyment froin the activities of these 
three days. 

For over half a century now, Bowdoin has been observing her 
Ivy Day with traditional ceremonies, symbolic and fraught with 
meaning. But in these later years it seems that possibly the 
original significance of the day is being lost, buried beneath the 
rush and importance of a fast-moving houseparty. We should not 
forget entirely that the Ivy Day exercises are in themselves both 
the true cause and the true end of all these festivities. Our house- 
party as we hold it today has grown out of the simpler activities 
accompanying the early Ivy ceremonies. We should remember 
that the planting of the ivy is an outward manifestation of the un- 
seen bond which has grown up between the Class and the College, 
and among us as individuals, and that the exercises which accom- 
pany it are held to vest the occasion with suitable dignity and 
solemnity. At this time, if never else during the year, we should 
realize that we are members of the great body that is the College, 
and that service to the College — now and in the future — is our 
duty and our privilege. 


The Orient prints the following 
communication with a full sympathy 
for the problems involved. Having 
heretofore stated its position in re- 
gard to the control of athletics by ex- 
tra-collegiate bodies, the Orient is 
ready to stand by any move which at- 
tempts the retention of athletics in 
undergraduate hands. We have stated 
before that we are strongly in favor 
of a modification of the Penn Plan 
which holds the control of athletics 
within college halls, which would give 
to the undergraduate a real participa- 
tion in the athletic policy of the col- 
lege, and which would bring the fac- 
ulty of the institution a more definite 
influence in the athletic program. 

Mr. McLaughlin states the problem 
as succinctly as possible: it is in fact 
merely the old Bowdoin problem 
writ large. This is the day when 
swords are drawn in real conflict in 
regard to athletic policy. The Penn 
Plan is steadily gaining headway on 
all sides. Any policy which tends to 
go against the spirit of the plan is 
running counter to the trend of the 
times. Once again we offer sympathy 
and our support to the undergraduate 
viewpoint in regard to the N. E. I. 


The "Bugle" 

We understand that there is a move on foot to change the mode 
of paying for the Bugle. Probably never in all the history of this 
publication — at least since it has been supported by an assessment 
on the Juniors — has its financial path been anything but uphill, 
and rough at that. Junior assessments are notoriously hard to 
collect, and there is always a measure of injustice in the matter of 
who pays and who does not. We are given to believe that the new 
plan would change all this by including a Bugle subscription in the 
blanket tax of the whole student body, regardless of class, thereby 
distributing the cost to each undergraduate over four years, in- 
stead of having it paid in a lump sum as it now is. At present, 
moreover, the levy is made in the midst of preparations for Ivy — 
always a period of heavy expense to the Juniors especially. For 
that reason alone it would seem wise to spread the cost so that it 
will fall more lightly and at a time more convenient. 

Furthermore, by making 1 the Bugle assessment part of the blan- 
ket tax, its payment would be made compulsory by the College, and 
the financial difficulties so often resulting from the failure or in- 
ability of the class to collect the necessary funds would be obviated. 
Nor would there any longer be the possibility of a few members of 
the class wriggling out and refusing to share their part of the cost 
of a class activity. 

Altogether, on the surface at least, the proposed change seems 
highly advantageous. Perhaps not. But it seems to us that an 
evenly distributed, small compulsory fee, paid annually, would be 
in every way more satisfactory than the present hit-or-miss collec- 
tion, or attempts at collection, of a larger and more inconvenient 
payment, especially since there is no way of insuring that the full 
amount will be paid.

Editor of the Student Paper 
Bowdoin College 
Brunswick, Maine 
Dear Sir: 

On May 23rd there will be a con- 
vention at Lewiston, Maine of the N. 
E. I. C. A. A. of which your college 
is a member. At this meeting an at- 
tempt will be made to wrest control of 
the organization from student hands 
and place it in the grasp of alumni, 
coaches, and athletic directors. 

We are fighting this move, since 
we believe that athletic competition is 
a student function and the administra- 
tion thereof should be a student re- 
sponsibility. In the enclosed state- 
ment, you will find a history of the 
association under student control, the 
attempts made prior to this to raid 
the association and take the power 
from the undergraduates, and the de- 
tails of the present drive. 

In answer to the logical question 
"What if the alumni and coaches do 
control, what is the harm in that?" 
Consider the instance cited on page 2. 
The N. E. Conference is controlled by 
the latter. When an attempt was made 
to pass rule 5 which states that no pro- 
fessional can represent a college the 
rule was rejected. It was rejected 
so that men could play profes- 
sional and semi-professional baseball 
in the summer and be amateurs in 
school — a rotten state of affairs. 

The enclosed statement is being is- 
sued by Dr. Stratton of Technology 
and is already in the hands of your 
college president. 

In the interest of continued student 
control, for the principle of clean un- 
tainted sportsmanship, and for the 
athletic integrity of' your college we 
wish to enlist your support in this last 
minute campaign in the interest of 
clean athletic competition. 

Yours sincerely, 

e. f. Mclaughlin, 

Member of the Editorial Board

in Mr. McLaughlin's letter may be

The Outing Club 

Among our dying campus organizations, perhaps the nearest 
to the grave is the Outing Club, once a fairly active group, now 
well on the way to oblivion. Here again the trouble lies partly with 
the members, and perhaps, more with the officers. From time to 
time various half-formed schemes and projects connected with this 
body have been put forward, but for nearly three years absolutely 
no action, beyond the form of elections and an appointment or two 
with the Bugle photographer, has been taken by the club. All this 
is really too bad. Without a doubt there are in the College a num- 
ber of men who would be interested in the sort of activity which a 
live Outing Club could offer. The very location of the College, 
within stalking distance of many of New England's famous scenic 
points, should aid such a group and should make it a desirable 
organization. One has only to point to the famous Dartmouth 
Club, or to the active Bates Club nearer home, for an example of 
what similar groups in this region are doing. Perhaps Bowdoin 
men are pot interested in such matters ; perhaps outdoor life does 
not attract them. If this is true, they are missing more than they 
know. But all that aside, if Bowdoin can support such a club, as 
we verily believe it can, let the present organization take a new 
lease on life and do something, we don't care what. If, on the 
other hand, interest in, this field is dead at Bowdoin, let the present 
Outing Club stop keeping up its semblance of life and disband 

After weeks of decidedly unspring- 
like weather the arrival of something 
like spring is generally acceptable. 
We begin to appreciate the latent 
beauty of the campus — the verdancy 
on all sides, is a decided relief from 
the harsh black lines which are ours 
from November to May. 

The results of the Major exams 
as far as we can determine were very 
satisfactory. We are prone to wonder 
however just what all this success is 
going to prove. Of course, there re- 
mains in .he background some 
nebulous ideal which the scholastics 
deem worthy of all. The consideration 
of the Major exam system in relation 
to the decline of departmental clubs 
at Bowdoin is of course plausible. Per- 
haps it would be an idea worthy of 
consideration, if the more commend- 
able and constructive features of the 
departmental clubs were carried over 
into Major work and vice versa. 

The propinquity of exam period 
coupled with the presence of Ivy usu- 
ally has the effect of cold and warm 
currents of air clashing together in 
a summer sky. The lightning that 
follows always strikes, sometimes 
violently, this struggle. But on the 
other hand, when one considers the 
marked ability of the average man to 
forget, he does not place much value 
on the note attainment of fact. The 
major examination system may best 
leave a residue of intellectual curiosity 
which the graduate may take with 
him into the world as something ac- 
tually fostered by the College expe- 

The recent initiation of pledges and 
election of officers to Pi Delta Epsilon 
is at least some indication that this 
fraternity still lives. It remains for 
the new group to develop a program 
which will prove the worth of the 
organization on the campus.

Besides his Quill activities, Ahern 
has played an extremely active part 
on the Orient Board. Next year will 
be his fourth on the Bowdoin news- 
paper, when he will occupy the post of 
Associate Editor. This year he wa3 
co-managing editor with George T. 
Sewall '32. Ahern is a member of Psi 
Upsilon fraternity. 

Lamport, succeeding Thomas as 
Business Manager, has likewise ex- 
perienced two busy years on that 
Board; this year he was advertising 
chief for the publication. Next year, 
also, Lamport reaps the fruit of his 
endeavors, as manager of varsity 
football. He is a member of Beta 
Theta Pi fraternity.

became the pastor of the Gray church, 
where he served for two different pe- 
riods, from 1863 to 1874 and from 
1877 to 1893. Other churches where) 
he served were at Camden, Fort 
Fairfield, and Bluehill. Me. 

In 1907 he retired from active pas- 
toral work and went to live with his 
daughter at Urbana, 111., but returned 
to Southern Maine a short while af- 
terwards, because of his preference 
for this part of the country. 

In spite of this active religious life, 
he found time to take an immense in- 
terest in the welfare of Bowdoin. He 
had married Mary Hawes, the sister 
of Charles Hawes, the president of the 
Board of Overseers, and thus he 
kept in even closer connection with 
the college. As long as his strength 
lasted, he attended all the alumni re- 
unions at the college. He was a char 
ter member of the Bowdoin chapter 
of Theta Delta Chi. 

Professor T. C. Van Cleve and P. 
S. Wilder will represent the College at 
a meeting of the Western Massachu- 
setts Alumni Association which is to 
be held tomorrow at Amherst College. 
The other speakers will be: Professor 
George R. Elliott, a former member 
of the English department, and now 
a member of the Amherst faculty; 
Professor Herbert C. Bell, who spoke 
here on vocational day as a former 
member of the faculty; and Harry

President Sills eulogized the influ- 
ence of the young instructors, recently 
out of graduate schools, saving that 
they served to keep better communi- 
cation between the students and the 

Need of a New Science Building 

President Sills also revealed the 
need of a new science building. He 
stated that the present building was 
overcrowded, and that a new building 
devoted to these courses would provide 
for the extension of the Geology De- 

He continued by mentioning that en- 
tering students were better prepared 
in the rudiments of English, and could 
devote much more attention to litera- 
ture, and less to the elements of com- 
position. He said that there was a 
growing appreciation for the value of 
the art and music courses, and pre- 
dicted that they would increase in im- 
portance in the next twenty-five years. 

He finally revealed that there would 
be a new Freshman history course of- 
fered in the fall of 1932. He stated 
that this course would cover history 
from the Fall of Rome down to the 
present time. 

Robert Hale, president of the club, 
presided, and there were about fifty 
members present. 


Catacombs of communication 

Beneath the streets of most cities Bell 
System men build catacombs of com- 
munication. Through these subways run 
the cables that may serve millions of 
telephone users. 

From each central office, cable dncts 
spider-web throughout the area served. 
Other ducts, containing trunk lines, 
connect one central directly to another. 
Still others contain long distance circuits 

which join the telephones in one city 
with those in another. 

This great underground system exists 
today only because years ago telephone 
engineers worked it out. As the telephone 
habit grew they foresaw the need of clear- 
ing streets of overhead wires and protect- 
ing circuits for greater efficiency and ease 
of maintenance. And today this practice 
of forward planning goes right on.

suspended on the back wall of the 
Gym while the side columns will be 
adorned with plaques bearing the 
Junior Class letters and the Bowdoin

while additional lights will stream 
from nine elaborate hangings in the 
so-called tropical colors which will be

"Five Pennies" and Bix Beidebecke. 
Nichols and his men are now on a 
tour of New England colleges after 
completing a winter's engagement 
with the Broadway musical hit, "Girl 
Crazy". In fact the orchestra com- 
ing will contain some other well 
known musicians which were added 
for the trip. Just recently, the or- 
chestra played at the Yale Prom and 
at spring dances at Williams and Holy

graph records and have the reputation 
of being one of the very best white 
dance orchestras in the country. 

Bruce M. Binley '32 will have

A TRACK man will tell you that records are broken when 
the track is fast. Think of this setting — a cool evening, 
, the stands overflowing, the whole spectacle brilliantly lighted 
with G-E floodlights, and a fast track — a record simply 
couldn't stand the "gaff." 

Nighttime, when people naturally turn to diversion, is the 
logical time for a track meet. Lack of support will be a thing 
of the past. And just watch the athletic fund grow. 

G-E floodlighting projectors, largely the development of 
college-trained men, are easily adapted to any occasion whether 
football, track, tennis, commencement, receptions, or plays. 
Efficient G-E illumination promotes athletics and builds 
school spirit.

The Growler will make its last bow 
of the year on Friday. This inde- 
pendent comic has met with a fair and 
perhaps more than fair approval on 
the campus. Whatever may be said 
against the publication there is this 
to be said for it. No organization on 
the campus has uncovered more latent 
talent during the last year than the 
Growler. This is an achievement of 
which any organization may be proud. 
The Growler has done this in a very 
definite and actual way.

Rev. H. O. Hough Speaks on 

Romance of Radio in 

Sunday Chapel 

The thrill in conquering space and 
in reaching confined and tormented 
souls was the theme of the Rev. 
Howard O. Hough's address on "The 
Romance of Radio" in chapel last 
Sunday. As pastor of the famous first 
radio parish in Portland, the Rev. 
Hough is singularly able to describe 
the great work that the church is ac- 
complishing by means of the radio. 
He spoke warmly of the cause into 
which he has put many years of la- 
bor to tell everyone, everywhere, 
through this new agency, the message 
of the church. 

The speaker explained that, al- 
though it might seem incongruous to 
picture romance in the act of entering 
a small room and talking into a little 
bjack microphone, there actually ex- 
ists infinite romance in being able to 
reach a million people at one time. In 
days of yore, the greatest preacher 
or the most eminent statesman was 
able to speak to only a limited number 
of listeners, and his own personality 
could affect only a small audience 
which was present in the flesh. To- 
day, on the other hand, a living per- 
sonality may be transmitted into 
thousands of family circles at the 
same time. 

Science Aids Religion via Radio 

To illustrate further the way in 

which romance invades the field of 
practical and material affairs, Rev- 
erend Hough cited a letter which 
came in his mail. It had come from 
the occupants of a lighthouse on some 
bleak shoal. "We can hear the waves 
roaring outside . . . ", read the let- 
ter, "and your voice seems like a 
godsend to us."; certainly there is 
powerful romance in such a response 
to one's words. 

So much has been said concerning 
the conflict between science and re- 
ligion that we are prone to ignore 
the fact that science, embodied in 
the radio, has become a great boon to 
religion in recent years. Essential as 
many things may be to our lives, re- 
ligion is our biggest interest, for re- 
ligion is the expression of life, and 
religion cannot be bound in. 

Religious Hours More Popular 
Than Jazz 

The Church is generally regarded 
as conservative to the extreme, yet 
the advent of radio found it awake, 
alive, and in a receptive mood. A 
survey of the hours devoted to various 
types* of broadcasts reveals that re- 
ligious broadcasts take up more time 
on the air than even the popular King 
Jazz. This fact is a significant one to 
the Church, for the people themselves 
dictate as to what shall be broadcast, 
and their preference is clearly shown. 
Radio is modernizing the; form of 
religion, and religious radio program* 
constitute a vitally human agency for 
transforming and changing life. 

Five years ago in his parish, Rev- 
erend Hough dedicated himself to the 
radio ministry. He believes in the 
masses, and affirms that religion will 
fit the masses today as it has done in 
the past. The speaker, using the 

familiar lines, "God moves in a mys- 
terious way, His wonders to perform", 
connoted an idea of the link radio 
creates between science and religion. 

"All the learning you may gain 
here," he continued, addressing per- 
sonally the one hundred or more stu- 
dents present, "will be of no good un- 
less you realize that it is given you 
for the purpose of serving mankind." 
He then told of the infinite pleasure 
he derives from talking over the ra- 
dio to those who were unable to go to 
church. One letter told of a family, 
isolated twenty miles from the nearest 
railroad, who were accustomed to 
gather in the parlor every Sunday 
morning to enjoy the full solemnity 
and beauty of a regular church serv- 
ice, hearing the services by radio. 
In another case, shut-ins who had 
been for twenty-five years incapable 
of hearing, discovered^that they could 
hear the voice of the radio, and 
quickly became devotees of the radio 

Seth Parker's Success Secret 

Sometimes it is said that the church 
has been losing influence since it has 
taken to the radio, but a typical case 
was cited to prove the opposite. An 
unchristian and misanthropic husband 
was practically converted to religion 
and its ideals after accidentally be- 
coming interested in radio religious 
broadcasts, and the outcome was a 
happy household where strife had ex- 
isted before. "At 10.45 tonight mil- 
lions of people will listen to Seth 
Parker. Why? Because he deals in 
human values, and if you come to 
realize those values, you will suc- 

"Radio," concluded the speaker, "is 
today serving men, women, and chil- 


Schools of Briscia and Florence are 

Represented in Portraits Loaned 

by E. A. Silberman 

Through the courtesy of E. A. 
Silberman, of New York, two very 
valuable paintings have been placed 
on exhibition in the Sculpture Room 
of the Walker Art Building. These 
portraits arrived here on May 7, and 
it is believed that they will remain 
on exhibition during the summer 
months. They are both famous mas- 
terpieces, one of them being one of 
the oldest of Italian paintings. 

The titles of the portraits are 
"Madonna and the Child with Two 
Saints", and "Portrait of a Gentle- 
man". The first of these is of the 
Florentine school, and was painted by 
Gevardo Starnini (1354-1408). It is an 
oil on wood. The other is an oil on 
linen, painted by Giovanni Battista 
Moroni (1520-1578), who was a 
member of the school of Briscia.

"In the cross of Christ I glory,

Gathers round its head sublime."

IN congratulating the winners in the 
great Camel contest we want at the same 
time to thank most cordially the approxi- 
mately million men and women who dis- 
played their friendly interest by sending 
in an entry. 

We wish also to thank the millions of smokers 
throughout the country for the appreciation 
they are showing for our new Humidor Pack 
as is evidenced by the notable increase in the 
sale of Camel cigarettes. 

By means of this dust-proof, germ-proof, 

moisture-proof Cellophane wrapping the 
rich aroma and full flavor of choice Turkish 
and mellow Domestic tobaccos have been 
air-sealed in Camels for your enjoyment. 

If you have not tried Camels in the Humidor 
Pack all we ask is that you switch over to this 
brand for one day. 

After you have learned how much milder, 
how much cooler, how much more enjoy- 
able it is to smoke a perfectly conditioned 
fresh cigarette, go back to the harsh hotness 
of stale cigarettes if you can.

Honorary Society is Busy 

Welcoming Visiting 


With the conclusion of most of the 
Bowdoin athletic schedules, the 
White Key completes its first year of 
service after the reorganization which 
took place at the beginning of the 
present school year. Composed of 
only nineteen members of the junior 
clasa and hindered by its lack of 
funds, this society has done an infinite 
amount of good in welcoming visiting 
athletic teams to the college. 

The purpose of the Key is to meet 
visiting teams at the station, to sup- 
ply them with lodgings and board, and 
to see that they are properly cared 
for during their stay at Bowdoin. The 
members, although all engaged in 
other work for the college, have 
worked conscientiously to fulfill this 
purpose and have done exceptionally 
well. They have been handicapped by 
the fact that it is an entirely new or- 
ganization and by the further fact 
that they receive no financial aid from 
the college. 

Much Good Accomplished 

This honorary society has been 
available to all visiting teams, par- 
ticularly to the minor sport teams. 
Major teams, such as football, pre- 
fer to have permanent arrangements 
of their own, but freshman track op- 
ponents, interscholastic contenders, 
and minor sport competitors have 
been greatly assisted by the organi- 
zation under the leadership of its 
president, W. Lawrence Usher '32. 

The society plans to meet every 
team at the station, conducts them 
to the school, arranges for their 
sleeping quarters, and provides en- 
tertainment for them during their 
stay in Brunswick. Much credit is due 
the various fraternity houses which 
have been willing to take care of the 

Formation of Key 

The White Key is composed of 
junior representatives from each of 
the activities of the college, together 
with the class officers and six mem- 
bers elected at large from the junior 

At present the society is formed of 
nineteen members. W. Lawrence 
Usher, John W. Hay, and John 
Creighton, Jr., the class officers, are 
members, the former being president. 
Other representatives are: from the 
publications, Philip C. Ahern, George 
T. Sewall, and Warren W. Stearns; 
from football, Bruce M. Binley and 
Richard M. Lamport; from hockey, 
Richard C. Van Varick; from baseball. 
R. C. Boiling; from track, Robert C. 
Mover; from the musical clubs, Rich- 
ard N. Sanger; and from the Masque 
and Gown, N. D. Lovell. 

Besides these men, there are six 
members elected from the class at 
large. At the present time these are: 
Delma L. Galbraith, Creighton E. 
Gatchell, John A. Ricker, Charles F. 
Stanwood, Harry W. Thistlewaite, and 
Francis A. Vaughan. 

Members for next year will be 
chosen from members of the pres nt 
sophomore class serving in these va- 
rious activities. As usual six men will 
be elected at large.

tries to bribe a passing laborer into 
getting the hat for him but the slow 
witted laborer suspects that he is be- 
ing made the tool of some dishonest 
venture and refuses to go. A clerk 
who strolls by shortly afterward can- 
not rise from his prosaic existence to 
such a deed. A poet finally comes 
along and to him the caller tells his 
full plight. Instead of getting the 
hat the poet sits down to speculate 
on "essentials" and on the fine poems 
that he could make up about the situa- 
tion. When the caller finally decides 
to go himself, the poet tries to stop 
him warning him that he might be 
reconciled and start a family. "Then 
Romance would be dead", he pleads 
to the caller. The caller rushes in 
nevertheless while the poet remain3

The author, Lord Dunsany, has 
written many other plays, poems and 
tales a majority of th,em being of a 
mystical and symbolic character. 
His diction is noted for its purity 
which resembles that of the Bible. 
Lord Dunsany attributes this quality 
of his style to the fact that, as a boy, 
he was never allowed to read the 
newspapers for fear that they would 
contaminate him. His reading was re- 
stricted to the Bible and to books such 
as Grimms and Anderson's fairy tales. 
Among his other plays, perhaps the 
best known are "The Gods of the 
Mountain" and "King Argimenes and 
the Unknown Warrior". 

In the Masque and Gown produc- 
tion, M. Chandler Redman '34, will 
head the cast as the caller, while Wal- 
ter D. Hinkley '34 will play the la- 
borer; Roger S. Hall '34, the clerk; 
A. Samuel Davis '33, the poet; and 
William D. Rounds '34 the policeman.

Harry from the four-forty final in the 
hopes that he might do better in his 
specialty, the half. So Bowdoin went 
into this event unrepresented. At the 
start Williams leaped into the lead but 
rounding the second corner Adams 
simply opened up and glided by the 
fleet Colby runner. From then on to 
the tape he was never headed or his 
lead threatened. Williams captured 
the runner-up position while Pendleton 
of Maine took third. The time for the 
event was fifty-one seconds flat. 
Maine Leader Surprises in Dashes 
Captain "Rayjno" White of the Uni- 
versity team turned in two stellar per- 
formances in the dashes by leading 
Knox, Bates colored flash, in both the 
hundred and the two-twenty. In the 
afternoon qualifying heats of the cen- 
tury, White and Knox each won in ten 
two. The Polar Bears failed to place 
anyone while Maine succeeded, in get- 
ting three past the barriers and Colby 
two. In the final, Knox stepped into 
the lead at the very start but White 
seemed to suddenly unloose an extra 
supply of power halfway down the 
straightaway to gallop over the finish 
a full yard ahead of the Garnet ace. 
Means of Maine copped third place. 
White's time in scoring this upset was 
an even ten seconds which is nothing 
short of sensational on such a rain- 
soaked track as was at Orono. 

In the morning trials for the furlong 
these same, three point winners quali- 
fied together with Adams of Bates. 
Martin of Colby and "Milt" Hickok of 
Bowdoin. Then when the afternoon 
festivities came around, just to prove 
that his other performance was no 
flash in the pan, "Raymo" came down 
the straightaway with a clip that 
forced his competitors to take his dust 
or more truthfully his mud. The tim- 
ers snapped the Maine leader in 
twenty-two and two-fifths which is 
another startling performance. The 
Bates men, Knox and Adams, finished 
in that order after White. "Milt" 
Hickok got off to a fine start and ran 
side by side with the two Garnet per- 
formers for the greater part of the 
stretch but weakened and fell back 
into fifth position in the last sixty 

880 Yard Run 

Bowdoin reaped another point when 
Captain Harry Thistlewaite fought his 
way into third place in the 880 yard 
run. Halfway through the race Harry 
was trailing Chapman and Cole of 
Bates, with the pack nipping at his 
heels, Larrv Usher and Jack Donworth 
included. With 120 yards to go This- 
tlewaite outstripped the fading Cole, 
and was in turn passed by Steve Mank 
of Maine, who Dut on a strong sprint. 

The two-mile run was a heartbreak- 
er for the White and for Steve Laven- 
der, who finished fourth. With four 
laps behind and four to go the Bowdoin 
hope was in fourth .place, Sewall in 
8th, and the four leaders were well 
bunched. Whitten of Bates pulled 
away sixty yards from the field in the 
next half-mile, while Lavender went 
by the faltering Gunning of Maine. 

On the backstretch of the gun lap. 
Lavender staged a premature sprint, 
and was passed at the last turn by 
Booth of Maine. Whitten had a 70-yard 
lead at the tape, with Booth driving 
into second place past Jones of Bates. 
Whitten's time of 10 min., 2 1-5 sec. 
was no disgrace to the meet, consider- 
ing the juicv footing. 

Bowdoin Supreme in the Hurdles 

McLaughlin and Stanwood, Bow- 
doin's fleet pair of timber toppers, 
showed their heels to the rest of the 
field in both of the hurdle races. With 
the exception of the two thirds picked 
up in the 880 and the mile, these 
points represented the sum total of the 
White's points on the track. 

In the morning trials in the highs, 
McLaughlin proved an easy victor in 
the first heat. The other qualifiers in 
this heat were Williamson of Colby 
and Charley Allen, Bowdoin Frosh 
star. The other heat found Stanwood 
leading Stiles of Maine without the 
slightest exertion. Eaton of Bates was 
the sixth man to qualify for the finals. 
In these, the two lanky Bowdoin lads 
ran stride in stride to lead their com- 
petitors to the tape by about three 
yards. McLaughlin managed to nose 
out Stanwood for the first place honor. 
Wheeler gave Colby a point by taking 
a third while Allen came up in fifth 

Stanwood allowed Wheeler to lead 
him in the first heat of the two-foot- 
six barriers in twenty-six and one-fifth 
seconds. Eaton again picked up the 
third position. The only other trial 
necessary was taken bv McLaughlin in 
time which bettered the preceding one 
by a fifth of a second. Ray was trailed 
by Lufkin of the Pale Blue and bv his 
team-mate, Allen, in that order. In 
the afternoon Stanwood topped the low 
sticks like a champion to lead Mc- 
Laughlin by a yard. The Colby hur- 
dler again garnered the third position. 
The race was clocked in twenty-five, 
one, which, although three-fifths of a 
second back of the record, is a remark- 
able time when the wretched condition 
of the track is taken into consideration. 

Webb Soars to New Vault Record 

The only one whom the elements did 
not seem to phase was Freeman Webb, 
U of M pole vaulter, who had the dis- 
tinction of shattering the only record 
of the meeting. This tall and well- 
built chap was the only one of the 
vaulters to clear the bar at twelve 
feet. Then after the judges had meas- 
ured the height, remeasured, and then 
measured again, the crosspiece was 
set at twelve feet one inch, which was 
three-quarters of an inch over the then 
existing record. This height was as 
easy for Webb as the preceding and 
the Maine man twisted himself over 
for a new record. Further attempts at 
raising the mark Were called off in 
order for the Pale Blue star to com- 
pete in the high jump. 

The pole vault, which was the first 
event on the afternoon urogram, start- 
ed off in a drizzling rain which raised 
havoc with the runway and the poles. 
Appleton, Bowdoin's hope in the event. 

succeeded in making eleven feet six for 
second place. Third place was divided 
between three men, Gardner Pope of 
Bowdoin, Dill of Bates, and Havey of 
Maine. These vaulters cleared the bar 
at eleven feet. 

The high jump went as expected to 
Charley Stanwood but at a height of 
only five feet seven inches. A. very 
muddy take-off in which the Jumper 
sank several inches was responsible 
for men like Webb of Maine and Rob- 
inson of Colby not doing better. The 
former came from the pole vault to 
capture a second place. The third po- 
sition resulted in a tie between Chase 
and Branch of Maine and Lawson 
Odde of Bowdoin. 

Galbraith and Olson Victors 

As was expected "Del" Galbraith 
came through in the hammer throw 
with a first ulace. His distance was a 
hundred and fifty-seven feet six inches. 
This heave came in the afternoon after 
he had led the qualifying round in the 
morning with a throw of a hundred 
and fifty-one feet five and a half 
inches. Sprague of the Mules placed 
second in the morning and remained in 
the same position during the hammer 
heaving in the finals of the afternoon. 
"Doc" Brown furnished the great up- 
set in this event when he outdistanced 
the best heave of Colby's other favored 
son, Perkins, by over fourteen feet. 
John Hay, the onlv other Bowdoin en- 
trant in this event, had difficulty in 
staying in the ring during the morn- 
ing throws. After fouling on his first, 
five throws, in order to get just one 
measurable toss he took only one turn 
on his last try and threw the sixteen 
pound pellet a hundred and eighteen 
feet which was short of qualifying. 

The greatest surprise and triumph 
for the Polar Bears during the course 
of the meet was in the javelin throw 
where Reino Olson crashed through 
with a remarkable throw of a hundred 
and sixty-nine feet. His slow ap- 
! proach was all to his advantage in the 
wet underfooting which caused his 
competitors no end of trouble. After 
the forenoon competition had been 
completed in the drizzling downpour, 
Olson ranked only fourth amongst the 
half dozen of entrants. Captain Tre- 
worgy of Colby, the favorite, was lead- 
ing at the time with a hundred and 
sixty-seven foot throw. But Reino, the 
onlv representative of the White in the 
event, got away one afternoon toss 
which outdistanced Treworgy by two

should have been easy prey for the 
White batmen. 

Morrell May Appear on Mound 

Lloyd Morrell, who went the en- 
tire fourteen innings against Colby, 
and relieved Norm Brown against 
them the following week, is almost 
certain to start the Ivy Game. In 
spite of the surprising rally in Bat-:^' 
hitting and fielding forces, without 
undue bad breaks, Bowdoin looks to 
a win. Kven improved as they were, 
the Garnet went to 11-8 to edge the 

Talkative little Pete Lewia was 
smashing them out in his rtr.-t league 
contest; the stocky Frosh addition to 
the catching will probably be seen 
backing up Morrell's heaves Friday. 
Formerly the regular maskman, Son- 
ny Dwyer is slated for the daisies; 
his heavy batting guarantees hi-^ 
place at left field. 

Another changeling insofar as 
position goes is Big Ben Shute. Th> 
erstwhile pitcher — if he does not see 
immediate service on the pitcher's box 
— seems to have first base well In 
hand. Ben's another of the Bowdoin 
big guns, having poled out a couple 
of long ones, a three-bagger mixed in, 
during that fourteen inning grind 
against the Mule. 

No Trouble with White's Batting 

The Housermen find no trouble in 
connecting with the horsehide when 
they have bats in their hands; their 
difficulty seems to lie in connecting 
with it when they have gloves in 
their hands. ,Yet if they can co- 
ordinate as they did against Colby 
in the last two games, the Polar Bear.- 
should find no trouble in taking the 
Wildcat into camp. 

Besides Morrell, Coach Houser looks 
for pitching support to Norm Brown, 
Shute, Means, and Dowling. The 
White is aided by the fact that the 
Ivy Game is on the home lot, and the i 
additional comfort that a home game ' 



Wet and soggy courts called a halt 
to the jayvee netmen's hopes of a I 
match with Deering High last Friday, ! 
and one with the Big Green of Hebron, j 
Saturday. The Frosh racqueteers look ' 
hopefully forward to fulfillment of| 
these net duels in the very near fu- 

It would have been the first time the , 
Polar Cub tennis men met up with 
Deering, while the Hebron fray was a I 
return match after their recent wini 
over the Lewiston prepmen last week ;

Bowdoin Outhits Bath Outfit but Poor 

Start Spells Loss — Dowling 

Strikes Out Ten Batters 

Bowdoin's battling jayvees failed to 
hold in check the Bath Times nine 
after having made a brilliant seven 
run rally in the seventh and eighth, 
as eight errors contributed to a 12- 
10 win for the Editors. The White 
juniors outhit the Bathmen, but a 
poor start clinched the contest for 
their visitors. 

As the fifth inning drew r to an end 
the count stood eight to one, with the 
Polar Cubs trailing. Dowling, striking 
out ten men, was overshadowing his 
opponent, Oliver, but lacked complete 
.-upport from his field. Art Stone, 
choosing an opportuno moment for 
his lone hit, drove a whistling leaguei 
into far left field, scoring Koempel, 
Bossidy, and Hempel. 

Unfortunately the Bath diamond- 
men duplicated the White's efforts, 
hanging up threo tallies. Bowdoin 
made a dying kick in the eighth inning 
and drew alongside the journalists 
with three well-placed runs. The 
ninth saw one lone man passing over 
the home sack, as Bath concluded the 
afternoon's scoring. 

Bossidy, drawing three safe clouts 
out of four times at bat, and main- 
taining the windy shortstop position 
with but one miscue starred for the 
Bowdoinmen. Oliver, gathering a 
hit, and practically winning his own 
game in the field with two put outs, 
two assists and no errors stood out 
for the victors.

In a tussle at Colby last Friday af- 
ternoon the Polar Bears lost to the 
Mules by a two to one count. Th-- 
home club played fine ball in backing 
up their pitcher, Mansfield, who al- 
though touched for nine hits, never 
got himself into trouble. "Norm" 
Brown started on the mound for the 
White but a spell of wildness in the 
fourth forced him to retire in favor 
of Lloyd Morrell. The latter kept tho 
Waterville boys from scoring and is- 
sued only two hits; but the damage 
was done. 

With one doSvn in the third, Bow- 
doin succeeded in populating all tho 
hassocks when Brown received a free 
ticket. Ricker singled and Captain 
Whittier was passed. Then Sonny 
Dwyer planked one into left to bring 
in the White's only run. McKown com- 
pleted the frame by hitting into a 
double play. 

The fatal fourth started with one 
down. Norm issued a free ticket to 
Dietjen and then "Ace" Roberts 
stepped into a fast one for two bases, 
which also scored his teammate. 
Davan bingled, sending Roberts to 
third. The Bowdoin twirler proceeded 
to pick off Plummer sending this 
worthy to first and then the little 
Colby chatterbox, Charley Heddericg, 
watched four bad balls go by to forci 
in the run that decided the ball game. 
At this point, Morrell stepped on the 
mound and the little flurry came to 
an end. 

Halfway through the fifth the gam- 
was stopped for an hour in order to 
allow a passing shower to go its way. 
The seventh found the Houser boys 
filling the bases but falling down in 
the pinch. Several other scoring op- 
portunities presented themselves but 
the necessary punch seemed to be 
lacking. Both clubs played fine ball 
with Dietjen, covering the hot corner 
for the home team demonstrating the 
best fielding.

with six state titles under his belt. 
Stanwood in the high jump and low

Johnson in the broad jump will be 
looking for further laurels on the

Ray Olson's great heave of 169 feet j 
with the javelin at Orono was the \ 
outstanding performance by any 

' wearer of the White. Ray came j 
through to excel his best previous j 
mark by five feet under conditions : 
which demoralized his opponents to a | 
surprising degree. 

Ten seconds flat for the century 
dash was the excellent contribution 
of Captain Raymond White of Maine, i

dled and muddy cinders in an even ten 
seconds is no mean accomplishment, 
and the record might have fallen un- 
der more favorable conditions.

equals the Bowdoin vaulter's 11 feet 
6 inches. First in the event looks as 
though it might be copped by Webb, 
who won all-Maine State last week 
with a splendid 12 feet 1 inch, bad 
weather conditions included. 

Galbraith Has Hard Assignment 

At last Del Galbraith will strike 
up against some genuinely bitter op- 
position. With a dubious glance at 
the hammer heave of lf><> feet 9 inches 
that gave Flanagan of Holy Cross a 
win over the best Boston U. had to 
offer, Del can safely be conceded a 
second. His premier throw was 160 
feet 8 inches, bettering the Wildcats' 
lecord in the meet at Durham. 

Olson, outdoing himself at Orono 
Saturday, covered himself with glory 
when he sped the slim stick through 
the air for a throw of 169 feet even. 
But New England javelin men are 
pood — very good. New Hampshire's 
Geotfrian broke his own mark in their 
meet last Saturday with Tech at Bos- 
ton, and hung up an astounding 192 
feet 4 inches. This practically sews 
the event up for him, with a probable 
second falling to Robertson, M.I.T., who 
spanned 185 feet G inches against 
Maine several weeks ago. Unless Ol- 
son surpasses his State Championship 
throw, he will be relegated even fur- 
ther back — to fourth place — by Fors- 
berg, who has 175 feet 1 inch to his 
credit, made when his Northeastern 
grappled with Bates. 

Teams Depend on Individuals 

The New Englands are one meet 
when individual stars are the order of 
the day. With the exception of Holy- 
Cross, no northern college is looked 
to for consistent scoring. The prob- 
able meet-winners may place in all but 
five events, making most points in the 
hammer and the* 440. " McCafferty, 
who raced Fleet of B. C. to a thrilling 
stride-for-stride quarter last Friday 
at Boston, is almost sure to break the 
tape again, unless the slim B. C. soph 
can edge him. The Holy Cross man'b 
winning time was 48 3-5 seconds. 

Bates ought to clean up in the mile, 
with their unbeaten combination of 
Viles-Chapman clicking. The Bobcat 
distance twins raced neck and neck 
against Northeastern to tie in an 
easy 4:27 four laps. New Hampshire 
will rely principally on her sterling 
fieldmen to garner points, though 
Demoulpied's 9.50 3-5 two mile 
against M. I. T. assures him of a first. 

Of the eighteen colleges entered 
for the meet at Lewiston this Sat- 
urday, a pre-summary shows Am- 
herst, Boston U., Colby, Rhode Island 
State, Worcester Poly, and Williams 
with a combined total of precisely 
zero! Again, advance dope may lie. 
Bowdoin's milers, Sewall and Usher 
may spring a surprise, and nose out 
Booth (timed at 4.30 1-5 against M. 
I. T.) of Maine or Fischer of North- 
eastern, a 4.30 3-5 man, for a place. 
And Doc Brown may score in the 
weights ! 

University of Maine athletes hold 
eight of the state track records, in- 
cluding every field event save the 
hammer throw. Two other marks, for 
the 220 and 440 yard dashes, they 
share with Bates and Colby.

Housermen Win First Party 

Game in Years to Tone 

of 4-3 Score 


Ben Shute Strikes Out Six Men and 

Walks None to Help Team Out 

of Difficulties 

After a relapse of several years, the 
Bowdoin Polar Bear finally crashed 
through to win their Ivy Day game 
with Bates to the tune of 4-3. The 
game, though close, was not extreme- 
ly fast, and there were several slow 
moments in the game. The large 
crowd was resplendent with the 
bright-colored dresses of the girls who 
attended the Ivy party. There were 
a few humorous incidents in the game, 
but Policeman Charley Alexander 
took the prize when he manfully 
strove to keep the field clear of the 
multitude of urchins who insisted up- 
on witnessing the game from beneath 
the bleachers. 

Ben Shute, the Polar Bear hurler, 
and Millett of Bates both lasted the 
entire game and both pitched very 
good ball. Numerous errors were the 
tilings that prevented their perform- 
ances from being much better. Shute 
easily pitched the better game, for he 
struck out 6 men and gave no free 
passes. On the other hand, Millett 
was nicked for 11 solid binglee, and 
eased himself from a great many 
holes by the skin of his teeth. 

Bowdoin scored two runs in the 
first canto and Bates retaliated with 
one in the second. Bates knotted the 
score in their half of the third, and 
Bowdoin managed to push over an- 
other run in the fifth. Bates again 
threatened by scoring their last, lone 
run in the seventh. In the last half 
of the ninth, Ricker, the first man 
up, hit a beautiful drive over second 
for a pretty single. Whittier tried 
to bunt him to second, but struck out 
in his attempt. Shute then hit a hard 
grounder to Heddericg, the brother 
of the famous "Chatter-box" Charle y, 
Colby's favorite catcher. Heddericg 
promptly booted the grounder into 
right field, Ricker advanced to second 
and then immediately to third, while 
Shute went on to second. Dwyer 
then lined to Toomey, the Bates short 
stop, who managed to fumble and 
waste his throw to third long enough 
to send Ricker home for the winning 

Bowdoin Scores Twice in First 

From the outcome of the first in- 
ning, it looked like a walk-away for 
the Houserites. Ben Shute promptly 
dispatched the Bates men in quick 
order. In their half of the opening 
canto, the Polar Bears opened with a 
single by Ricker, who advanced to 
second on Whittier's sacrifice. He 
came home on errors by Heddericg 
and Toomey. With two out, Lewia 
singled, and scored Shute for the 
second run. Heddericg ended the 
scoring when he caught Rose's pop 

Bowdoin showed signs of living up to 
their Ivy Day reputation in Bates' 
half of the second. Shute struck out 
Kenison, but he managed to reach 
first when Lewia dropped his last 
strike. McClusky hit a long fly to 
Dwyer, which Sonny easily caught. 
On the next pitch, Kenison stole to 
second, and then advanced to third 
when Parmenter allowed Lewia's peg 
to go through him. Berry got a 
Texas Leaguer to score Kenison, and 
Flynn managed to drop another in 
the same place. Both runners ad- 
vanced when Lewia dropped Dean's 
last strike after Shute had struck 
Dean out. Brown walked and the bases

Eight Members of Junior 

Class Selected from 


Fifty-Eighth Annual Ivy Ceremony and 
Last Chapel Pass into History 

The fifty eighth annual Ivy Day Ex- 
ercises of the college started at eleven 
o'clock last Friday with the usual 
Se.-uors' Last Chapel. A fairly large 
number of seniors and a somewhat 
smaller gathering of undergraduates 
than marks the usual weekday serv- 
ices attended. The only incongruous 
notes were struck by the caps and 
gowns of the seniors and the bright 
dresses of the houseparty guests. 
President Sills presided and took his 
text from the eighth chapter of 
Deuteronomy, "Thou shalt not live 
by bread alone". Following a short 
musical service the President offered 
prayer. The Seniors indulged in a 
piece of sentimentality worthy of the 
feature at the Cumberland theatre 
as they lifted their voices in "Auld 
Lang Syne." With all due respect to 
Robert Burns, it seems to the writer 
that this method of expressing regret 
at leaving well-loved haunts died in 
the late Victorian period and should 
be left to the Hollywood producers 
who still live mentally in thatt inter- 
esting era. Marshal Robert Ecke then 
led the class out of the building. 

The chapel once cleared, the Juniors 
hastened to array themselves in the 
caps and gowns doffed by the Seniors. 
Marshal John Creighton found scarce- 
ly a third of his class waiting to at- 

tend what is supposed to be one of |« 
the most important functions rf any 
class but the small attendance of Jun- 
iors was made up for by the throng 
of undergraduates and friends of the 
college \Mho nearly filled Memorial 
Hall. After the inevitable music, ren- 
dered this time by Warren, Presi- 
dent John Hay, presiding, briefly 
traced the history of Ivy Day from 
its inauguration in the fall of 1865 
until the present year. He first in- 
troduced the Class Poet, George T. 
Sewall who read a short composition. 

The Class Orator Harrison M. 
Plaisted then spoke on the relation 
of the Industrial Revolution to the ul- 
timate destiny of civilization. After 
tracing the growth of machine mad- 
ness in man, Plaisted closed with a 
hope that the college would provide 
the solution to this problem which 
seems to be depriving some people of 
their excuse for being, since they are 
not needed in the support of others. 
This problem of what to do with our 
leisure has also been voiced by lead- 
ing educators throughout the country. 

After still more music Hay agaiu 
came forward. He traced the custom 
of presenting the Wooden Spoon to 
the most popular member of each Jun- 
ior class back to its origin in 1874

Awards of Five Hundred 

Dollars Each Offered 

by Bowdoin 

Out of the twenty-five men who ap- 
plied originally to the Student Coun- 
cil for proctorships, eight have been 
recently chosen to serve as proctors 
in the ends next year. The twenty- 
five men were considered by the Stu- 
dent Council who sent a list of the fif- 
teen best fitted candidates to the Dean. 
From this list the eight new proctors 
were selected by the Dean and ap- 
proved a few days ago by the faculty. 
The tentative list of proctors is as 
follows: John Albert Ricker, Jr., 
Selden Eugene McKown, Daniel Alley

Seven scholarships have been 
awarded to high school students in 
the state of Maine according to an 
announcement released last Thursday 
by Professor Stanley B. Smith, chair- 
man of the committee making the se- 

Bowdoin College, to encourage pu- 
pils in secondary schools to enroll in 
their native state, offered eight schol- 
arships for the scholastic year 1931- 
32. The sum amounts to five hun- 
dred dollars, with the added attrac- 
tion at automatic release from the 
necessity ox taking entrance exams. 

The counties of Maine are divided 
into eight districts for the apportion- 
ment of the scholarships, and the 
highest ranking student in each re- 
ceives the award. If a district faila 
to present a candidate passing the 
examination, its scholarship is for- 
feited, as in the case of this year. 
Scholarship Recipients 

Scholarships were awarded to the 
following: Philip Frost Thorne, Deer- 
ing high school; Stuart Emerson 
Thoits, also of Deering; Brooks 
Emery, Kennebunk; James Lougie 
Atherton, Houlton; Roscoe Goodridge 
Palmer, Dexter; Paul Edward Sulli- 
van, Auburn; and Nathan Wilbur 
Watson, Bath. 

Both Deering students have fine 
records, Thorne being valedictorian of 
his class tins year, and Thoits presi- 
dent of the graduating class. Kenne- 
bunk has for two years sent its val- 
edictorian to Bowdoin, Emery holding 
the honor for 1931. 


MorreU Pitches Well But 

Bowdoin Batting is 

Again Weak 

The chances of the White for the 
State Series crown were rudely shak- 
en last Wednesday at Orono when Cy 
Perkins of the Pale Blue shut out 
the Bowdoin team. While this worthy 
was administering the whitewash, his 
teammates were busy tallying five 
runs, which resulted from bunched 
hits in both the fifth and the sixth 
frames. Lloyd Morrell on the mound 
for the visitors allowed only six hits 
but most of these came very oppor- 
tunely for the Brice-men. The fea- 
ture of the contest was a long home 
run by Kizjonak, the Maine, right 
fielder, in the fifth. 

Bowdoin looked dangerous in the 
third when Herbie Rose opened with a 
single and then advanced on a Par- 
menter sacrifice. Morrell hit safely 
but Rose was unable to get past third 
where he remained for the rest of 
the inning; Ricker struck out and 
Captain Whittier popped up a high 
fly to Hincks in center field. 

White Fails in Crises 

In the fifth Parmenter tripled but 
was caught at the plate in attempting 
to stretch the hit for four bases. Two 
innings later the Polar Bears crowded 
the bases and again appeared omin- 
ous. But Lefty Perkins just put on a 
little more power to fan Morrell and 
Ricker to bring the inning to a close. 

Maine's scoring in the sixth was the 
direct result of a two base clout by 
Perkins into right with Smith and Mc- 
Cabe ahead of him on the base paths. 
A few seconds later, Cy scurried 
across the rubber when Halgren hit 
safely into left.

Bowdoin Expects to Show 

Well in Hurdles and 


The annual track and field cham- 
pionship games of the Intercollegiate 
A.A.A.A., to be held Friday and Sat- 
urday of this week at Franklin Field 
in Philadelphia, seem destined once 
more to be won by one of the three 
great entries from California. Except 
in the 1924 meeting, when Yale 
brought the title to the East, South- 
ern California, Stanford, and Cali- 
fornia have in turn shared the national 
limelight in track athletics. The Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania appears to be 
the outstanding eastern * competitor 
for team honors, but Penn is weak in* 
the sp r ints a l M 'ltar dl e events.^ J 
Javelin Record in Danger 

One first place on which the South- 
em California outfit banks heavily is 
Ken Churchill's javelin throw victory. 
Since boosting the intercollegiate 
mark to 212 feet, 5 inches at Harvard 
last year, the sinewy Californian has 
beaten that mark three times in com- 
petition, and has done better than 200 
feet on eight occasions. In competi- 
tion this year one informal throw went 
220 feet 9 inches; no other entry has 
done 200 feet consistently. 

The other champions of the meet 
will have to fight to retain their 
laurels. Frank Wyckoff, world sprint 
king, will be pushed by Eddie Tolan, 
Hector Dyer, Milt Maurer, Frank 
Lombardi, and Les Hables, all of 
whom have been clocked in 0:9.8 sec- 
onds or better for the century dash. 
The 220 will see Stanford's Hec Dyer 
toe the mark to defend his 1930 crown 
against such worthies as these, al- 
though it is understood that Wyckoff 
will not be run in the furlong. 

Eugene Record of Harvard is 
counted on to win the high hurdles 

(Continued on page 2) 

Consisting of five days of ceremo- 
nies and meetings, the program for the 
commencement exercises of the class 
of '31 has been recently completed. 
Starting with the Baccalaureate Ad- 
dress by the President on Sunday, 
June 14, a full round of events will 
keep the various visitors to the col- 
lege busy until June 18. 

Many events of great importance 
have been scheduled for the week, 
chief of which is of course the Com- 
mencement Exercises in the First 
Parish Church on June 18. This cere- 
mony, in which the seniors officially 
receive their degrees, will bring the 
week to a conclusion. 

The class day exercises of the grad- 
uating class will be held two days 
previous, on June 16. This old cere- 
mony will take place as usual beneath 
the Thorndike Oak at 3 P. M. On 
the evening of the same day the Sen- 
ior Dance will be held in the gym- 

The Masoue and Gown will present 
"Twelfth Night" at 8.30 P. M., on 
June 17. This play, as usual, will be 
presented on the terrace of the Walk- 
er Art Building. In case of inclement 
weather, the comedy will be held in 
the Cumberland theatre. 

President Sills will commence this 
important week with the delivery of 
the Baccalaureate Address on Sunday, 
June 14, in the First Parish Church. 
The following evening the annual 
Alexander Prize Speaking is to be 
held in Memorial Hall. 

Between the events of major im- 
portance, the visitors will be enter- 
tained by band concerts, organ re- 
citals, and various games. The Presi- 
dent and Mrs. Sills will give several 
receptions and teas during the week. 
Members of alumni organizations will 
attend business meetings between oth- 
er events. 


Pi Delta Epsilon Initiates 

New Member? at 


At a recent meeting of the Bowdoin 
Chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon, a new 
group was admitted into this nation- 
al journalistic honorary society and 
the officers for the coming year were 
selected. Those initiated at the time 
were James B. Colton, 2nd, '31, Fred R. 
Kleibacker '31, William N. Small '31, 
Philip C. Ahern '32, Dominic N. An- 
tonucci '32, Gordon C. Knight '32, 
Richard M. Lamport '32, and George 
T. Sewall '32. 

After the ceremonies, election of 
officers was held and the resulting 
new staff is: George T. Sewall '32, 
president; Philip C. Ahern '32, vice 
president; and Gordon C. Knight '32, 

It was the firm resolve of those 
present that a new and more 
vigorous program should be adopted 
for the future work of the chapter. 
No definite plans were laid, but the 
possibilities for a wider scope of activ- 
ities were brought forth and dis- 


Predictions Upset as Holy Cross Weakens — Wildcats 

Score 26 Points to Polar Bears' 24 1-3 — Brown Third 

and Bates Team Fourth 


In a radical overthrow of all pre-meet result dope, Bowdoin's 
tracksters invaded the Lewiston track and with a strong aggrega- 
tion threatened New Hampshire State, the ultimate winners, for a 
second place only 1 2-3 points behind the Granite Staters. Led by 
Charlie Stanwood, who* collected two firsts and a second place and 
who was the high point man of the meet, the White team surprised 
the newspaper laddies and uncorked an attack which won them 
24 1-3 points in the annual New England Track and Field Meet 
last Saturday. 

Holy Cross, pre-meet favorite, seemed weak and placed only 
fifth, while Brown garnered 20 % points for a third place. Bates, 
by virtue of her quarter, half, one, and tw<| mile men, won a fourth. 


Unfortunate Selection of 

Plays Cause of Chief 


Last Friday the Masque and Gown 
made another gallant attempt. Ham- 
pered by the unfortunate selection of 
two mouldy dramas of the pre-war 
vintage, the discouraging difficulties 
of inadequate stage machinery, and 
an evident lack of rehearsal, the 
Bowdoin footlighters furbished up en- 
tertainment for the weary houseparty 

Said the Orient last week: u . . 
light pieces expressly fitted for fes- 
tive occasion." The worthy publica- 
tion humbly takes it all back, for if 
anything, "The Lost Silk Hat" and 
"Wurzel-Flummery" were not suited 
for vivifying jaded Ivy-goers. Lord 
Dunsany writes in a ponderous, re- 
ligious tone; that be should produce a 
comedy calculated to awaken one — 
or to keep him awake — even under the 
influence of the Cumberland theatre's 
misnamed seats is scarcely plausible. 

Mr. A. A. Milne deserves better 
merit for his works, and the failure of 
"Wurzel-Flummery" to excite the 
students may be passed off merely as 
another inept choice of the college 
actors. Why must the Masque and 
Gown persist in offering plays that 
went stale ten years ago? And why 
can't they produce a modern comedy, 
one that would be talked of later than 
Sunday after Ivy? 

College Has Dramatic Talent 

If it were a lack of dramatic talent 
that loses approval for the Masquers' 
offerings, there would be no need for 
criticism. The genuinely splendid bit 
of interpretation done by Albert Tar- 
bell '32, as Richard Meriton in A. A. 
Milne's dog-eared masterpiece is 
worthy of comment; Mrs. John C. 
Thalheimer and Mrs. Ralph de Someri 
Childs did some creditable acting. 

However, more care should be taken 
with the casting; and this leads to the 
basic fact that turnouts for Masqun 
iGontmoad on Fas* S) 

Bowdoin Star High Point Man 

Four Firsts to White 
Bowdoin gathered four first places 
during the afternoon, the largest num- 
ber won by any of the fourteen scoring 
teams. Charlie Stanwood soared over 
the high hurdles and high bar for two 
firsts and took a second to McLaughlin 
in the lows. Galbraith overthrew the 
defending champion, Flanagan of Holy 
Cross, in the hammer for the fourth 
first place for the White. Capt. Thistle- 
waite added another point when he re- 
ceived a fourth in the half mile. The 
other one-third point was won by 
Appleton who tied for fourth in the 
pole vault. 

Two meet records fell during the af- 
ternoon. Brooks of New Hampshire 
vaulted 12 feet 8 inches to far outclass 
bis opponents and to break the exist- 
ing record. Likewise Robertson at 
Tech hurled the javelin for a distance 
of 189.9 feet to establish a new mark 
for competitors in New England to 
shoot at. In addition to this, Adams 
of the Garnet ran the most beautiful 
and spectacular race of the meet to 
equal the New England record of 
48 2-5 seconds in the quarter mile. 

Stanwood Stars 

Stanfeood was the spectacular star 
of the meet; on his toes every minute, 
busy with his hurdle trials and his 
high-jumping, he put on a wonderful 
exhibition as he won high point honors. 
It was chiefly through his efforts that 
Jack Magee's charges were able to 
threaten New Hampshire as they did. 
By winning both the high jump and 
the high hurdles, he acquired thirteen 
points which was the foundation upon 
which the White based its threat. He 
was kept plenty busy all afternoon 
with semi-finals and finals in both hur- 
dles and his work jus the high jump. In 
this latter event he leaped 5 feet 11 
inches which was quite sufficient to as- 
sure him of the crown, though five men 
had had to clear this same height the 
previous afternoon to qualify. In the 
finals the best height Fanning of 
Brown, Coon of M.I.T.. and Scott and 
Freeman, both of Northeastern, could 
reach was 5 feet 10 inches; Robinson 
of Colby couldn't even reach that 
mark. The four tied for second and 
'divided six points among them. 

Gets High Hurdles 

In the high hurdles Charlie got a 
good start and led his competitors 
throughout the stretch, leading White- 
house of New Hampshire by three 
yards. Thayer, also of the Granite 
State team, placed third and MacDon- 
ald of Holy Cross came in fourth when 
the defending champion. Powers of 
Northeastern, stumbled near the finish 
and was counted out in the points. 

Bowdoin copped eight points in the 
220 yard low hurdles when McLaugh- 
lin handily came in first followed by 
Stanwood in second position. These 
two ran steadily in this order through- 
out the race, with Whitehouse of New 
Hampshire and MacKenzie of North- 
eastern finishing in third and fourth 
places respectively. 

Ray McLaughlin ran into a little 
tough luck in the preliminaries of the 
high hurdles when he was eliminated 
from the competition in that event.

Perkins and Sprague Win Matches 

Easily in Two Sets — Abbott and 

Frost Lose 

One of the finest competitive athle tes Bowdoin has ever boasted, Charley Stanwood, carried off individual lau- 
rels of the New En glands by scoring a total of 13 points and did a lion's share in putting Jack Magee's track 
crew in runners-up position in the final standing. Stanwood is shown shooting the low barriers in perfect 
form. Courtesy Portland Sunday Telegram 

The Bowdoin tennis team was even 
2 to 2 in their dual match with Battv 
last Saturday when rain caused the 
postponement of the doubles play in 
their meeting at Lewiston. Perkins 
and Sprague had won their matches 
for the White in short order. Abbott 
and Frost were defeated with more 
difficulty by their Garnet opponents. 

The summary: 

Jacobs, Bates, defeated Abbott, 
Bowdoin, 6-3 2-6, 6-3. 

Perkins, Bowdoin, defeated Wood 
Dates, 6-2, 6-4. 

Sprague, Bowdoin, defeated Antine, 
Bates, 6-4, 6-2. 

Lightman, Bates, defeated Frost, 
Bowdoin, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4.

tion, we feel that Bowdoin might do far worse than to look into it. 
Furthermore, while we realize that the situation here is by no 
means as bad as was the one at B. U., nevertheless we feel with 
President Marsh that athletics should be by, for and of the students, 
and controlled by students and faculty, with the alumni playing 
only an incidental part, and with the whole athletics system on a 
par with other undergraduate activity, curricular or extra- 1 

Where our own college has up to this point failed to keep step 
with the newest trends, let alone taking the lead in this respect, we I 
congratulate the B. IT. authorities on their courage and their far- 
sighted planning.

The Reading Period 
Once again the time comes rolling around when we are expect- 
ed to review a semester's work in something like four days, about 
time to do a thorough job on one, or possibly two courses if they 
aren'ktoo difficult. We realize that this is an old, and doubtless 
a rather boring question to most of our readers. We have spoken 
of the matter before. We have asked that the College take some 
definite steps in consideration of the question. What has come of 
it? Nothing — so far as we know. And so we state again our 
strong, and we feel, well-grounded, opinion, that the reading pe- 
riod is far too short for any reasonably thorough review of courses. 
Some members of the faculty we know are strongly disposed 
toward a longer period of preparation for exams. This group un- 
derstands the difficulties facing the students who must cover sev- 
eral courses in the short period allotted, and the long-run worth- 
lessness of such hectic cramming as we are forced to use. No 
student can get a truly intelligent grasp of what has been covered 
in several months without taking some time for careful organiza- 
tion and study of the work as a whole. At the present time such 
careful work is precluded by the briefness of the time allowed for 
it. We are forced to cram for exams in a way which leaves no 
chance for the thorough knowledge which we should retain after 
the course is completed. It is axiomatic that facts hastily absorbed 
for examinations are almost as quickly lost Yet the College trains 
us not to pass exams only, but to have a better and sounder learn- 
ing with which to face life. Would that end not be better served 
if we were given the time necessary to arrange our jumbled store 
of facts in a more orderly and permanent fashion than the present 
system permits? We are inclined to think so, even though many 
members of the faculty differ with us. Can it be, after all, that 
these men feel that the courses they teach are so simple or so unim- 
portant as to require no such final adjustment? We doubt it. It 
must be for other reasons, which we are unable to discern, that 
they take this attitude. At any rate, until we are shown in a rather 
definite and unbiased way why the reading period should not ( be 
longer, we shall continue to take the stand for a longer and more 
reasonable rearing period. 

Control of Athletics 

Bowdoin, as we have before stated in this column, has passed 
up the chance to become one of the leaders in a new athletics move- 
ment. It is all an old story now to Orient readers. Yet the recent 
inauguration of a new plan at Boston University brings us back to 
the subject once more if for no other reason than to point out how 
we are failing to read the signs of the times in this respect. All 
about us colleges are clamoring for more local control of athletics, 
for alumni hands off, and even for athletics to be placed on an equal 
footing with regular curricular activities. And still we continue 
in the same old rut, with little or no regard for the main purpose 
of athletics, or for where the present course may see us land. 

The new B. U. plan provides for eventual undergraduate con- 
trol of all athletic activities, both intercollegiate and intramural. 
For the present, as we understand it, a joint control by faculty and 
coaches will be exerted, but this is gradually to be relegated to the 
background as student ability to handle the situation is better de- 
veloped. A new department of Student Health and Physical Edu- 
cation has been set up, with a dean at its head to control all 
branches of athletic activity. Intramural sports are to be more 
widely stressed than before, not to the exclusion of intercollegiate 
athletics, but rather in the hope of developing better material for 

the latter. 

The chief aim of the new program is to bring about athletics 
for the sake of the students and not for the sake of victory or gate 
receipts. Five years ago in his inaugural address President Marsh 
deplored the efforts of misguided but well-meaning alumni who 
were prone to lay too heavy stress on athletics, even to the detri- 
ment of curricular activities, and the unbalanced situation pro- 
duced by "the ambition to secure victory at any cost". 

"When a man is natural and at his best," he said, "it is his 
spirit that plays. Therefore, I would have athletics not for the 
sake of any championship, or gate receipts . . . but, fixing re- 
sponsibility in this matter where it belongs — definitely with the 
University authorities — I would have athletics of the students, by 
the students, and for the students." 

It is interesting to note that the new plan was put into effect 
without the knowledge of the present Athletic Council in which 
alumni control seems to have been the dominant factor. The sec- 
retary of the Council seems to fear the proverbial nigger in the 
woodpile in the form of diminished faculty voice in affairs and 
attendant decline of major sports owing to the advancement of 
intramural sports. However, all the major sports coaches are 
loud in their praises for the new system, and seem to have no 
qualms as to the effects upon their respective branches of activity. 

Thus, while we realize that this new departure is a long step, 
not without its dangers, and not entirely applicable to our situa-

gained, a id the memories that will linger through the years. We appreciate greatly our reception at

Sportsman's Pen 

The New England Intercollegiate 
track meet turned out to be surpris- 
ingly like the State Meet as far as 

Bowdoin was concerned, the White 
coming within two points of a great 
sectional triumph for the second time 
in a week. Primarily an unusual moral 
vietory for the team as a whole, the 
meet provided an opportunity for 
Stanwood to extend himself and reap 
great individual honors, and Stanwood 
did that well enough to wreak moie 
than naif the Bowdoin damage. 

Besides having Stanwood the high 
scorer of the meet and the only double 
winner, Bowdoin gained the distinc- 
tion of the greatest number of cham- 
pionships, four of the fifteen. Batts 
and New Hampshire were next with 
three victories apiece. The University 
of Maine athletes, fresh from their 
State Meet laurels, slumped to the 
very depths of mediocrity in the fast 
competition, grinding out a score of 
three points. 

Bates may draw considerable con- 
solation from the fact that her co- 
captains, Wally Viles and Russ Chap- 
man, by winning the mile and the 
half-mile respectively, were the only 
two out of seven defending cham- 
pions to retain their 1930 titles. Arnie 
Adams turned in the most spectacular 
race of the day for the Bobcat cause, 
winning the 440 from a favored field 
in 48 2-5 seconds, and equalling the 
record for the meet. 

Charley Stanwood, Ray McLaughlin 
and Delma Galbraith enter the I.C.4A. 
games without yet having met defeat 
this season. With the Polar Bear 
hurdlers taking both races hands down 
in one-two order at Orono, Ray copped 
the highs by accident while Stanwood 
took the longer race, reversing the 
usual order, which is as near as they 
have come to individual defeat. There 
was no competition for Galbraith at 
West Point, and figuratively speaking, 
none at all until the N. E. meet. 

Charging "profiteering" in the Uni- 
versity of Pittsburgh cafeteria, sev- 
eral students have brought charges 
against the management, citing the 
high cost of prunes as an example. 

Writers Club of Columbia University 
has just published an anthology of 
"unwanted" prose. 

Like an oasis in the dusty desert of dried 
tobacco, the new Camel Humidor Pack 
brings you the delight of fine quality 
cigarettes in factory-fresh, mild con- 

Now, wherever you go, you can always 
be sure of getting a fre»h, throat-easy 
cigarette when you demand Camels. 

It's easy to tell the difference. Your 
sense of touch detects it as you roll a 
cigarette between your fingers. Dry to- 
bacco is stiff and crumbly. Camels are 
full bodied and pliant. 

Even your ear can tell the difference. 
For a dried-out cigarette crackles when 
you roll it. 

But. the real test is taste and taste is 
causing a great nation-wide switch of 

men and women alike to Camels in the 
scientific new Humidor Pack. As you 
draw in that fragrant, mild, cool smoke, 
redolent with the joy of choicest Turk- 
ish and mellow Domestic tobacco, only 
then do you realize the full importance 
of this new Humidor Pack. 

For scorched or dried tobacco is brash 
and tasteless and its smoke is unkindly 
hot to the tongue and throat. 

If you are already a Camel smoker 
you have noticed the improvement in 
this your favorite cigarette. 

If you don't smoke Camels, try them 
for just one day to see how much you're 
missing. After you've known the mild- 
ness and delight of a really fresh eiga- 
rette, switch back if you can.

mer Garcelon Field record by 1-5 of a 

Galbraith Surprises 

Del Galbraith upset the dopesters' 
best predictions when he toppled Flan- 
eiran of Holy Cross from his throne in 
the hammer. Bettering- by five feet 
his qualifying throw of Friday after- 
noon, he tossed the hammer for 164.9 
feet to win the event. He was fol- 
lowed by Flanagan in second position, 
with Mudliszewski of Rhode Island 
and Sprajrue of Colby in third and 
fourth places respectively. 

Captain Thistlewaite found himself 
up against some pretty difficult oppo- 
sition in the half. Russell Chapman 
of Bates had the event well to himself 
and was scarcely forced at all during 
the distance. At the gun. Thistlewaite 
set the pace with Huse of Brown in 
second place, followed by Chapman. At 
the quarter Chapman slid easily into 
first place pursued closely by Jordan 
of Boston College. The latter proved 
to be a fighter and provided enough 
stimulus to force Chapman to better 
his mark set in the trials by a fifth of 
a second. However, his time of 55 3-5 
seconds did not equal the record, which 
he was trying to break in this his last 
chance in competition. Huse, Jordan, 
and Thistlewaite followed him in that 

Appleton Ties for Fourth 

The final one-third point was picked 
up by Appleton in his event, the pole 
vault. Here again the Bowdoin en- 
trant was confronted by pretty strong 
opposition. Brooks of New Hamp- 
shire, the winner, cleared the pole at 
12 feet 8 inches for a new record. Webb 
of Maine won the only points that his 
school was to receive in the meet 
when he vaulted into second place. 
Buonnanno of Brown won a third. 
Francis Appleton could only tie with 
Hazel tine of Tech and Mulherin of 
Boston College for fourth place. 

The 440 was the high spot of the 
afternoon. When the starting gun 
sounded, snort writers agreed that it 
would be between McCaffertv of Holy 
Cross, last year's victor, Adams of 
Bates. Shea of Northeastern, and Fleet 
of Boston College. 

440 Is Hot Spot 

Fleet on the pole jumped into a 
slight lead at the start but the other 
three found themselves fairly well 
hemmed in when they came out into 
the track oroner. Just before the half 
way mark. Adams took a sampler's 
chance and won on it. He shot cleanlv 
through the hole that Fleet unwiselv 
left between himself and the edge of 
the track. If the Boston College run- 
ner had pulled closer to the board, the 
Bates man would have had to break his 
stride and drop behind: however his 
luck was with him and he sneaked 
through to> victory. 

It was not until the straightaway 
was nearly reached that Shea and Mc- 
Cafferty succeeded in escaping the 
rockets that they had been in. The 
latter slowly worked by the Northeast- 
ern man and they both crept up on the 
leaders. As they approached the tape 
Fleet dropped behind and they finished 
in the order of Adams. McCafferty. 
Shea and Fleet, with the first two 
fighting out the closest battle of the 
meet. _„ 

Eight Score for N. H. 

Eight men contributed to the 26 
points which decided the meet for New 
Hampshire. The Wildcats won three 
firsts, when Pike took the broad jump, 
Brooks the pole vault, and Demoulpied 
the two mile. Whitehouse added five 
more points by taking second in the 
high hurdles and third in the lows. 
Thayer picked up two in the high tim- 
bers and Goefferion collected two more 
in the javelin. Noyes and Learmouth 
each got one point in the mile and shot 
put respectively. 

Holy Cross, the decided favorite, 
found the field too strong and although 
it scored in eight events, as did New 
Hampshire, it could get no first places. 
The fate of the PUrple was sealed when 
Morin, its star athlete, was only able

the 220, a third in the broad jump, and 
to take a third in the 100, a second in 
and Gown tryouts are actually pitiful, 
causing the dramatic coach to select 
his cast as best he may from the 
scant supply offered. Given a logical 
selection of a play by the Masquers., 
and sufficient coaching by the direc- 
tor, a presentation might be forth- j 
coming which would literally make the | 
college "play conscious". Just now it j 
is practically unconscious. 

failed to place in the finals of the jave- 
lin. Added to this was the sad plight 
of McCafferty when Adams defeated 
him in the wicked quarter. 

Maine Is Very Weak 

The failure of Maine to make more 
points in the meet was one of the big- 
gest surprises, for, after its perform- 
ance last week, some trouble was ex- 
pected, from them. The three points 
won by Webb in the pole vault was 
their limit. 

Brown N -JJniversity's 205 points

ing, teams. Fitost place victories in the

were full. Shute bore down, however, 
and forced Heddericc to ground out, 
thus retiring the side. 

Bowdoin managed to get three men 
on in the last of the second, but the 
rally soon weakened and the inning 
finished with the same score. Bates 
got another score in the third when 
Toomey beat out a throw by Whittier, 
went to third on Millett's grounder, 
and scored as Kenison grounded out 
to McKown.

bases were filled. The inning ended 
when Whittier popped out to Toomey 
and Shute repeated to Kenison. 

In the first of the fourth, Bates 
succeeded in getting Millett on first 
when there were two out. Lewis re- 
tired the side when he caught Keni- 
son's high fly, making the second of 
Lewia's eight put-outs. 

Polar Bears Score 

Bowdoin again scored in the last of 
the fifth when Hodden g dropped 
Dwyer»s Texas Leaguer. He advanced 
to third on McKown's two-bagger to 
left field. Lewis grounded out to 
first, and Rose flied out to McClusky. 
Dwyer was waiting for such a chance, 
and he set outfor home as soon as the 
ball reached: McClusky's hands, 
easily reaching the plate. Parmenter 
closed the story when he grounded 
out to Berry at first. 

The Bob-cats were retired in 1-2-3 
order in the sixth when McClusky and 
Berry flied out to Lewia, and Flynn 
flied out to Sonny Dwyer. The Polar 
Bears, however, not to be outdone, al- 
most repeated the incident when King 
Crimmins flied out to Kenison, and 
Ricker to McClusky. Millett ended 
it when he struck out Whittier. 

Lucky Seventh for Bates 
The seventh proved lucky for the 
Bates Bob-cat for they pushed an- 
other run over in this inning. For 
the second time in the game, Shute 
gave Dean the bench by striking him 
out Brown drove a beautiful wallop 
into deep center field, and was soon 
perched on third. After Ricker had 
caught Heddericg's fly, he threw the 
ball home and there was a slight

scramble at the plate. When the dust 
had cleared, Umpire McDonough ruled 
Brown safe. The play was extremely 
close and as the umpire's decisions are 
final, Bates had scored another run. 
The canto ended when Toomey 
grounded out to Crimmins at first. 

In the last of the seventh, Dwyer 
got a beautiful two-bagger after 
Shute had flied out. McKown was 
out on a close decision on first, and 
Sonny went on to third. He died there 
when Lewia flied out to center field. 

In the first of the eighth, Millett 
and Kenison grounded out to first and 
short respectively. McClusky then 
managed to get in the way of one of 
Ben Shute's slow balls. He started for 
first but McDonough called him back, 
saying that he had made no effort to 
get out of the way of the ball.* As if 
to show that he could do it, he then 
singled over second. Then, not being 
satisfied that he had caused enough 
runcus, he decided to steal second, but 
the ever-watchful Lewia caught him 
there with a beautiful peg to Parmen- 

No Score in Eighth

his third unsuccessful attempt. Rose, 
expecting a hit and run play, was 
caught off first when Millett threw 
to first instead of playing the bat- 
ter, and after a little useless running, 
Rose was tagged out by Heddericg. 
Crimmins then flied out to the short- 
stop, Toomey. 

Bates' half of the ninth was a little 
ragged, and was centered around Cap- 
tain Whittier. Berry grounded to him, 
and he got him with a pretty peg to 
first. Flynn repeated, but this time 
Whit's throw was a little low, and 
the runner was safe on first. 
Jakanousky, a pinch hitter for Dean, 
followed his two teammates and hit to 
Whittier. This time Whit muffed 
the grounder and Jakanousky was safe 
on first with Flynn on second. The 
next batter, Brown, tried to duplicate 
his three bagger, but Herbie Rose was 

on deck, and speared, the fly 
for a put-out. As soon as he got the 
ball, he pegged it to Crimmins and

This Month Sees Release of 
Two Biographies by Hart- 
man and Burnett 

Within the past tern or throe weeks 
two Bowdoin professors hove pub- 
lished books, one by Professor Her- 
bert W. Hartman of the English de- 
partment, whoso "Hartley Coleridge: 
Poet's Son and Poet'' has beon very 
weD received, and the other by Pro- 
fessor Charles T. Burnett who writes 
on "Hyde of Bowdoin". 

In a recent article in The New York 
'Times" Book Review, Percy Hutch- 
ison calls Professor Hartman's book 
"a canny study of a man whose 
tragedy it was to know that his Ufa 
was a failure.'* This brief biography 
of Hartley Coleridge is actually on 
excursion in psycl iotog y . But it is 
done with such compassion for human

Done by Bowdoin 

Last night the Masque and Gown of 
Bowdoin College presented William 
Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night". The 
play was ably coached by Professor 
Charles H. Gray of the English De- 
partment, as in former years. With 
Robert S. Ecke '31 and Agnes White 
playing the leading roles, the cast 
gave a very creditable performance ef 
this difficult piece. The audience, per- 
haps a trifle larger than in years 
past, was highly appreciative and 
seemed pleased with so finished an 
amateur production.

President Sills Emphasizes Self- 

Control in Baccalaureate Sermon 

Bowdoin's 126th Commencement 
opened last Sunday when President 
Kenneth C. M. Sills delivered the bac- 
calaureate address to the members of 
the graduating class at the College 
Church. Besides the members of the 
class there was a large congregation 
present to hear President Sills, who 
spoke as follows: 

These are very grave days. Pro- 
found nodal and economic changes are 
taking pines all over the world be- 
fore ear very eyes; yet the average 
person, especially the average Ameri- 
can, is blind to their importance, 
glibly of improvement just 
the earner, and Is making 
for the future in a fend trust 
that the eM ardor is to return. In a 
day when action both nationally and 
internationally is imperative, we like 
other nations are engaged in con- 

and are 
in the hope that 
_ fa going to torn op. While 
q few p rophets in various parts of the 
s pointing out the very real 
with which modern civilixa- 
ie threatened, most of as, pai- 
of the older generation, 
believe that somehow or other we will 
madam through; that it is of coarse sad 
that there is so much unrest and dis- 
tress *"d unemplo ym e nt and poverty 
hi the world; bat that after aU there 
is nothing fundamentally wrong with 
the present system. And pet that 
system in one single country presents 
more than out millions of unemployed 
the great majority of whom are hon- 
estly desirous of work, and at the 
same moment on oversubscription 
seven or eight fold of a government 
bond issue of hundreds of million* of 

In that one fact alone there is s 
very real challenge shove oB to youth 
and to the miming generation to help 
to set ear house in order. If there is 
no id ea l i sm left in youth, but an 
of indifference and eyni- 
the future would look dark in- 
But those who know American 

youth intimately, who live with them, 
who see beneath the inevitable froth 
and occasional folly, have hope and 
faith in their sanity, in their real if 
often unexpressed desire to be of 
service in their own day and genera- 
tion. Neither in college life nor in 
life outside the college is youth to- 
day likely to be held by mere tra- 
ditionalism. Youth in college and 
outside wants to be shown. Bat in 
a changing world youth will, so many 
ef us believe, follow progressive and 
consecrated leade r ship. It knows just 
as dearly as does the older generation 
that the times ore*nut of joint, as 
indeed so often in to* past they have 
been; h believes ths* all is not well 
with our social order; and though at 
times the problem seems insoluble, it 
remembers that so in times past to 
other generations did other problems 
such as the independence of this na- 
tion, slavery, military domination, 
seem hopeless; bat that there is and 
always will be a way oat of difficulty 
end distress if the human spirit is 
intelligent enough to find it and brave 
enough to pursue it. 

If youth is to face the iron days 
ahead with the purpose of overcoming 
difficulties and of making our present 
civilisation the servant of man and 
not his master, there are certain 
qualities of the mind and of the spirit 
that are indispensable; and they have 
too a vital relation to education. As 
the founder of one of our great New 
E n gland schools pot it, "goodness 
without knowledge is weak; and 
knowledge without goodness is dan- 
gerous." To give training in intel- 
lectual qualities that have a real 
moral value is the business of the col- 
lege .aa it is also, although from dif- 
ferent angles, the business ef the 
home, the school and of the church. 
Such teaming U concerned with the 
individual though it has social impli- 
cations, "In a time of grave moral 
uncertainty, amen many moral ideals 
which have been the support and 
of our race," to quote from a 

The names of three new directors

* Meeting 

For the first time in the history 
of Bowdoin College, an Alumni Club 
in Essex County, Massachusetts, is 
now a fact. It is called the Bowdoin 
Club of Essex County. 

About fifty Alumni of the college 
residing in Essex County were pres- 
ent at the dinner held May 21 at the 
Hotel Hawthorne, Salem. The pro- 
gram was full of interest to all the 
men present. During s fine lobster 
dinner, the old Bowdoin songs were 
sung with great enthusiasm. A fea- 
ture of the dinner was the self-intro- 
duction by those present in rotation 
order. It was here disclosed that men 
were present from practically every 
port of Essex County, from Lynn on 
the one side to Haverhill on the other. 
Lawyers, teachers, business men and 
doctors seemed to predominate. Out 
of thirteen doctors present, five came 
from Salem. 

Following the dinner a short busi- 
ness meeting was held. Frank R. 
Loeffler, '14, was master of ceremo- 
nies during the dinner and the business 
meeting. It was voted unanimously 
and enthusiastically to form an or- 
ganisation known as the Bowdoin 
Club of Essex County. A nominating 
committee headed by Judge George 
B. Sears, "90 of Salem, withdrew for 
a short period to draw up a list of 
officers for the ensuing year; also to 
go over a copy of tentative by-laws 
which had already been prepared by 
the Judge.

Prof. Arthur Harrison Cole ?11 
served today as grand marshal of the 
annual commencement procession 
composed of Trustees and Overseers, 
members of the faculty, and gradu- 
ates of the college. After meeting 
at 10.15 in front of King Chapel they 
marched to the graduation exercises 
at the First Parish Church where an 
organ recital was in progress. The 
president conducted the exercises at 
which the speakers were Paul A. 
Walker, Robert M. McFarland, Al- 
oert E. Jenkins with Francis A. Wiu- 
gate acting as an alternate. 

The regular degrees were conferred. 
President Arthur L. Crimmins and 
Vice-President George H. Souther re- 
ceiving the degrees for the class. The 
honorary degrees, confirmed by the 
Boards at their recent meetings, were 
also conferred, following which the 
many prizes were announced. 

At the conclusion of the exercises, 
the procession marched back from the 
church to the gymnasium to the an- 
nual dinner. All alumni, the recent 
graduates and parents, and under- 
graduates were welcomed. President 
Sills announced at this time changes in 
the faculty for next yeas and other 
items of interest which the meetings 
of the Trustees and Overseers had 
brought to the fore.

After going the rounds "cheering the

each other a last farewell. 

Dance Colorful Affair 

That evening less solemn activities 
held sway at the senior dance in the 
Sargent gymnasium. The music was 
furnished by Harry Ford's Hotel

campus, the Society of Bowdoin Women is busily occupied helping 
to make the visit of their families to the College a pleasant one 
I But to many of those connected with the College this represents 
the limit of the Society's work. However, this is far from being 
the case, for through the Society's efforts several lecturers have 
been brought here in the past, and other important contributions 
to the life of the College have been made. Far too few people 
realise the great value of the work of these women who are so 
truly interested in Bowdoin. Their work extends beyond purely 
tangible things, however. The building up of an esprit de corps 
among the wives of the alumni is something the importance of 
which should not be minimized or taken too lightly. The alumni 
of the College have a very real bond in common, and surely it is a 
good thing for their wives likewise to find some common meeting 
ground, some basis for new friendships and contacts outside their 
own immediate circles. 

At the present time we understand that the Society is conduct- 
ing a membership drive, and we feel that it is a thing which should 
be supported, not only for the service one may be able to give in 
this way, but; also for the personal satisfactions which should come 
from membership in such a body. We recognise the fine work the 
Society is doing, and wish here to commend those who keep its 
activities in progress.

much use. Sometimes, when I con- 
i sider what a simple sort Of failure the 
life I see is, I wonder where to go to 
discover that tragic interval of 
sensibility in eternity 4 ' which other? 
recognise as being true life, and which 
so raggedly solves all its problems

ness and sensuality. I am only simple- 
minded, and I can't see the grand

On Matters of Policy 

The end of the year is generally a time for stock-taking. When 
we come to look at the accounts of the Orient we find a number of 
items on both sides of the ledger. In some cases it is too early to 
tell whether our actions will result in credits or otherwise. 

The function of a college newspaper, especially a weekly, is a 
peculiar one. In most cases its value merely as a purveyor of 
news is questioned, perhaps not unjustly. Insofar, however, as 
it gives all the news, and does it accurately and in more or less 
detail, it renders a service of great value. In reflecting upon the 
matter, though, one is led to believe that perhaps its greatest ser- 
vice to the college community should lie in its editorial policy, 
provided it be a strong and independent, though not necessarily a 
belligerent, one. Ideas and opinions on campus life and campus 
activity may come to the attention of one in contact with the 
undergraduates much sooner and much more forcefully than they 
do to the administration of the college. Often they are in a more 
or less unexpressed and intangible form, and if they are allowed 
to die in this state something of real value may be lost. It seems 
to us that the cardinal duty of an undergraduate editor is to sort 
these ideas and opinions as they come to him, pigeonhole some, 
kill some, and put the best — the most dynamic and valuable ones 
— into a tangible form where they may be noticed and acted upon 
not only by the student body, but by the powers higher up. But 
the editor should not be merely a rubber stamp with which to 
broadcast duplicate copies of every rumor and scare that comes 
floating about the campus. He must keep abreast of the general 
trends in other institutions, and above all he must do a lot of 
tf l t nklng Ail hhiise l f an d not be afraid to express his opinions 
where he feels them to be for the general good in the long measure. 
He should never lose sight of the ideal of serving the college, and 
making his paper serve the college, in the highest sense of the 
term. He should consider all factors in every case, and weigh 
present or apparent good or evil against the best long-run interests 
of the college as a whole — alumni, students, and faculty. He 
should be ready and eager to take a pronounced stand on all im- 
portant question^pd to support his stand by careful and search- 
ing thought as far as he is able. Thus, and thus only, can the 
paper really serve the college. 

On the other hand, provided the editorial board lives up to its 
obligation to the college in actions on matters pertaining to the 
college, that body has rather definite obligations to the paper. It 
should consider seriously the opinions there expressed, without 
bias, and with an intelligent and whole-hearted attempt to under- 
stand the viewpoint taken. Moreover, in no case is it justified in 
seeking to cloud issues, hold back news, or suppress student opin- 
ion. By such a course taken and maintained by both parties, and 
only by such a course, can the paper give real service to the college. 

In the opinion of many connected in various ways with the 
College, the Orient has in the past fallen down in some respects 
in living up to its side of this mutual obligation. Perhaps it has — 
we do not intend here either to justify or to condemn. But in the 
majority of cases it has acted in good faith, seeking to fulfill in 
the widest sense, the ideals of what a paper of its type should do 
for the College. Where it has failed in this, or has apparently 
acted in bad faith, on ill-considered judgment, the fault has often 
lain withjjhe failure of the College to keep its side of the obliga- 
tion, either by failing to give essential details of the affairs dis- 
cussed or by wrapping the whole business in a fog of misunder- 
standing and false mystery until no one quite knew where they 

As we have said, we do not seek here either to condemn or con- 
done any actions taken by either party in the past, but we feel 
that the Orient has sought to live up to the ideal stated, often not 
without difficulty, and perhaps at times acting a bit too hastily. The 
College, on its part, has generally cooperated, but in one or two 
highly important cases it has not On the contrary, there has been 
some rather evident clouding of issues and jumbling of facts, 
whether inadvertent or not we shall not go into here. It may have 
arisen from misunderstanding of some sort 

For the future, however, the Orient shall continue to maintain 
an independent position, with the aim of serving best the ideals 
heresetforth. 1$ the College cooperates to the full we should real- 
ise some degree of success and avoid much of the difficulty which 
has been experienced on both sides in times past We do not seek 
to tear down existing institutions indiscriminately, convert the 
College into a young ladies' seminary, nor yet promulgate anarchy 
on the campus. We do seek to build up at Bowdoin a more human- 
istic (shall we can itf) attitude toward studies, athletics, and 
other activities, for we feel that such an attitude is best and will 
aid in turning out more fully-rounded man. Therefore we ask our 
readers to bear this fact in mind before they dismiss us as young 
bolsheviks or over-enthusiastic schoolboys.

The latest issue of The Bowdoin 
Quill net roused me to address these 
few comments directly to the com- 
munity where that magaaine is most 
generally disseminated. First, I can- 
not but compliment the industrious 
editors of The Quill for the acuteues* 
they usually display in the selection 
of their material. But— and this is 
the motive of my present composition 
— in the current number, I was aston- 
ished to discover an absurd offering 
called, "Arlette of Normandy." How 
great a departure is witnessed there 
from the ordinary standards of The 
Quill! — so great a difference, indeed, 
that even I, who would not wilfully 
criticise the periodical adversely, am 
impelled to make this public lamenta- 
tion,! this gentle reprimand — if, my 
slight voice holds so much weight — 
that such a trifle as "Arlette" should 
be admitted into the company of 
those other articles which make this 
Quill a notable publication. Would 
that "Arlette" had been written to 
their lofty standards, and been as lit- 
tle in need of further attention by the 
critic as they unquestionably are! 

And yet I am no carping critic, 
I hone; none of those pedants of little 
learning and less judgment whose 
dry talents must stretch — like an 
elastic band, growing thinnest where 
the strain is greatest — over a life- 
time of learned ignobility. Nor am I 
one of those editorial prestidigitators 
who can make a book of a paragraph, 
and as easily dismiss a book in a 
sentence — who, in the classic words of 
Lucretia, the grand exemplar of 
Roman virtue, in her poem, "About 
The Naturalness of Rebuses", wrote, 
"Ac risibus salsas docuit super ire 

a formidable passage, which I con- 
ceive of (recalling the apt phrase 
from the English dramatist, 
That salt,— that criticism,— that 

analysis, — that compendium of wit- 

as applying to one who teaches his 
readers to ponder over with smiles of 
secret understanding the salty lacunas 
— the spicy hiatuses — so often found 
in so many books, and who with his 
mighty stock of erudition bludgeons 
chance asterisks into a state of 
anemic transparency until all thci 
significant meanings lurking behind j 
those useful devices are delightfully 

I should like to speak of this whole 
issue of The Quill, but I cannot: I 
am a disparager by profession and I 
mast confine my brief remarks to that 
part of the magaime which most de- 
serves my comments. The worst 
fault of "Scenes From Arlette of 
Normandy," aside from the original 
fatuity of its conception, is that the 
author, throughout his tedious pro- 
duction, has absolutely neglected all 
tile well-recognised opportunities of- 
fered to a writer for winning sym- 
pathy and interested appreciation 
from bis readers. This is altogether 
unpardonable. What right has say 
man to make a play, or any writ- 
ten thing, about peo ple no one knows 
of, and, without an apology or ether 
feint at false modesty, treat them as 
if they were, worth remembering be-

Pokmius knew, but Polonius could 
not do that which he knew. Doltishiy 
he exclaimed, "Since brevity is the 
soul of wit, and tediousness the limbs 
and outward flourishes — I will be 
brief." And then he proceeded to 
bore his royal audience. But, gentle 
audience, I assure you that Polonius's 
error will not be mine—though the 
sense of finality proper to delivering 
the last farewell address makes me 
wish to linger. 

In prospect four years of college 
life stretched interminably before us; 
in retrospect they seem to have winged 
their way with cumulative speed 
Hopes, fears, ambitions, and desires 
accompanied our entrance into col- 
legiate life; mingled pride and regret 
in our accomplishments is now ours. 
Many things, we had hoped to do still 
lie before us undone, but many other 
things we had not dreamed of achiev- 
ing are chronicled beside our names. 
Do our accomplishments outweigh our 
failures, or is the reverse true ? Judg- 
ment at this question belongs to our- 
selves alone. Not our fathers, moth- 
ers, and professors know the answer 
We alone know whether the laurel is 
ours. For our external achievements 
are we esteemed by others, but only 
ourselves know whether we, individu- 
ally, have succeeded in absorbing the 
elixir four years at college offers — 
self-knowledge. The discovery of what 
constitutes one's self is, it seems to 
me, the greatest accomplishment pos- 
sible during college days, and the 
most praiseworthy if realised. Upon 
this discovery hinges those qualities 
recommended to us by our president — 
self-reliance and self-control. We can- 
not understandingly rely and control 
ourselves till we know what we are 
—our limitations and our capacities 
— and, also, our contents. And when 
we have attained this self-knowledge, 
our external deeds and accomplish- 
ments will be expressions of our com- 
plete selves. To value the worth of 
such deeds we need not the applause 
of others; our self-knowledge will be 
sufficient. For there is no gainsaying 
the truth that nothing can bring us 
peace and satisfaction but ourselvc. 

In college we have rebelled, extolled, 
condemned and questioned. The in- 
dividual's attitude rises and falls as a 
wave, our college course has been, 
indeed, a wandering tone, seeming at 
times to double back on itself. But 
during this constant fluctuating and 
tacking we have been nearing an un- 
conscious objective fo * the main trend 
our course has been constant — 
this trend has been the way in which 
we, as individuals, have molded our 
characters. We are now the product 
of what we have done and thought 
through these past four years. The 
crystallization is not final yet; we arc 
told that this is but our commencement. 
Yet the roots of our character have 
been planted, and our future foliage

Opening Address 

PmI A. Walker 11 
Mr. President, CUumtUs, Friends: 

Mine is the pleasant task of wel- 
coming you. oar friends, to these last 
undergraduate rites of the Class of 
1981. rites which we observe with 
mingled emotions of Joy and sorrow— 
joy .that we are about to attain that 
for which we have striven these four 
years— aorrrtw that in its attainment 
we leave behind us, perhaps forever, 
this college which has come to mean so 
much in our lives. We are indeed fried 
to welcome so many of you here today, 
• for it is to you that we we much of 
our present success — through the sac- 
rifices that some of you have made, 
through the examples which many of 
you have set. 

As the opening speaker on our pro- 
gram, no doubt the less of your time I 
take up the better. I am more of an 
aperatif, prefacing the real feast 
which is to follow. To conform strict- 
ly with such a role, perhaps it would 
be well for me to make an end here, 
but I should like to add a few words 
to our welcome— with a silent prayer 
that in so doing I do net steal the 
thunder of any of the main speakers. 

We* have led the usual carefree, 
somewhat thoughtless life of the col 
lege undergraduate \iuring our four 
years here at Bowdoin. but with these 
exercises, marking as they do what is 
practically the end of our undergrad- 
uate careers, we hesitate, rt is time 
to think seriously. We are about to 
become graduates of Bowdoin College. 
to leave behind us as we receive our 
sheepskins much that has been verv 
dose to us. Of all this, memories. 
chiefly of the pleasant variety, alone 
will remain. Friends part. We pre- 
pare ourselves for a sterner world and 
its problems. All this is saddening.. 
and yet, is but natual. We are nearly 
at d great transition point in our lives. 
We have known that we were ulti- 
mately to reach it, but we have given 
it little thought until quite recently, 
when its very nearness has driven its 
significance home. It has had a sober- 
ing effect upon us. superficial evidence 
of the past few days to the contrary 

Here, theoretically at least, we have 
been taught to think. Will we still be 
able to think and think clearly, when 
we pass through this threshold on 
which we now stand and go forth into 
the outside world? There we shall 
have to face new problems, problems 
whkh will demand new adjustments to 
circumstances. We have heard much 
of these hazards, but most of us, as 
yet, have! had actually to face only few 
of them. Men in college often pride 
themselves on their ability to meet 
each new problem as it arises with 
thought unhampered by anv precon- 
ceived notions. Can we still do this 
in the years that are to come? Can 
we continue to respect this freedom of 
thought? We must. Times are not

for logical reasoning and the. need to 
spread the truth was felt more by him

and he dared to bring all of these 
things to the test of reasoning. It

was there that he drew his greatest

a rich and sympathetic voice, and a 
freedom from excessive piety he at- 
tracted all those imbued with a desire 

our civilization, and to do this, we 
should have the courage and the will- 
ingness to cut off from ourselves all 
outworn taboos and shibboleths which 
now in so many fields haunt and ha- 
rass the progress of truth. 

To take one concrete example, what 
could be more desirable than the prin- 
ciples put forward by the science of 
Eugenics: that we should seek to im- 
prove the human race, both physically 
and mentally alike? And yet. what 
opposition to its teachings do we see 
today! And this opposition is due in 
no small part to the tolerance and 
blind belief in outworn credos which 
are so characteristic features of hu- 
man society. What saner theory could 
one demand than that a man should 
limit the size df his familv to fit hi? 
pocketbook'? And yet what horror. 
yes horror, does one see at the mere 
mention of those revolting words: 
"Birth Control"! This instance I 
bring up with a definite purpose. The 
Dean of one of our New England Col- 
leges, in his baccalaureate sermon to 
the graduating class of his institution. 
flays these "men who would make reli- 
gion subordinate to science" with their 
doctrines of birth control, which he 
terms "legalised murder". Apparent- 
ly, he is confusing the issue: these 
men are not seeking to subordinate re- 
ligion to science, but to common sense. 
Apparently, he has never heard of 
weeding a garden or of thinning out a 
row 6f beets or radishes so that those 
which were left could grow to full size 
and perfection. He further charges 
his flock that they go forth and "build 
an edifice which will withstand the 
onslaughts of prejudice". A noble 
charge, but he stands self -accused. On 
what does he base his arguments if 
not on prejudice, on intolerance, on 
outworn credos that are still rankling 
in the bosom of mankind? I should 
have considered that this Dean had 
given his audience better advice if he 
h ad toM them to build an edifice that 
will withstand the onslaughts of intol- 
erance and bigotrv. and which will 
serve as a bulwark to the cause of 
freedom of thought and progress. 

Evolution is ever a powerful ex- 
ample of the clash between this spirit 
of intolerance and progressive think- 
ing. Tennessee has recently refused 
to repeal her notorious "Monkey Law". 
Wo are rather forcibly reminded by 
this incident of what one noted scien- 
tist' said on the subject of anti-evolu- 
tion laws. To his mind, the only peo- 
ple Who opposed the theories of evolu- 
tion were those who personally felt 
that evolution had done very little for 
them. The Scopes Trial was a blot 
upon the jurisprudence of Tennessee. 
The refusal of the bill to repeal the 
anti-evolution law merely makes the 
stain deeper. How anything resem- 
bling the science of biology may now 
be taught in that enlightened state. I 
fail to see. for in outlawing evolution. 
these wise, lawmakers have "purified" 
their state of what 1s probably the 
most basic theory of all modern 


These examples should suffice to 
skew the curse of our system of 
taboos, tribal suggestions, intolerance 
and hypocrisies. But, as one of the 

ing a letter from the great archbishop 
of Sens, ir which he was invited to de- 
bate Abelard a few weeks hence be- 
fore the spiritual and temporal nobil- 
ity of France. 

St. Bernard realized he was no op- 

method of his teachings. Theologians 
before Abelard had given only a small 
place to reason. Many of his predeces- 
sors had insulted reason by such

fully prepared to accept Bernard on 
every point without allowing Abelard 
any chance whatsoever to defend him- 
self. When the time came, Bernard 
mounted the pulpit and began to read 
the indictment, but suddenly, Abelard. 
realizing the significance of the move 
stepped forward and cried out, "I will 
not be judged like a criminal. I appeal 
to Rome". Whereupon he turned his 
back and strode out of the Cathedral. 

It is needless to speak further of 
the proceedings of the trials of this 
great master who was seeking after 
freedom of thought and vindication. It 
is only necessary to mention that even 
before Abelard should have time to 
make his appeal at Rome, the Pontiff 
had gathered the cardinals in council 
and decreed that works of the great 
theologian were condemned to flames 
and he himself waa to suffer the pun- 
ishment of all heretics. Seldom indeed 
had the Papacy ever condemned a man 
without hearing, but in this case the 
great influence of Bernard had swayed 
the Pope. 

The world was yet unprepared to ac 
cept the rationalism and freedom of 
thought which this great master had 
the courage to stand for. Europe was 
still under the spell of the Dark Ages. 
But history has vindicated this heretic. 
Reason precedes faith: reason must 
lead men to faith: that is the principle 
established by Peter Abelard. 

It is a matchless occasion of irony 
of events that some centuries after 
Peter Abelard. the heretic, had been 
driven to humiliation by the pious St. 
Bernard, the principles for which he 
stood should have become not only the 
core of Christian faith but actually ac- 
cepted into the teachings of the 
Church by which he was persecuted. 

Abelard had not any of the political 
influence or -political ability of some 
of the men of his age. But such as he 
is with a penetrating mind and led by 
a humanist ideal, that touched few of 
his contemporaries, pathetically ir- 
resolute and failing because the fates 
had made him the hero of a great 
drama, and yet denied him the hero's 
strength, he deserves at least to be 
drawn forth from the deep shadow of 
a crude and unsympathetic tradition.

When the evening shadows fall. 

And the lute has ceased to play; 
When one's college days are past 
And he goes his weary way; 
When the lamp is shattered so 

That in blackness all is mask'd; 
When the fear of life grips tight. 

Not by future qualms be task'd — 
A mighty vision hovers near: 

The court of rainbow dreams come true. 
With gates of gold and fountains clear; 
Look, and ye shall see its light! 

Hail, lad, wide open stands the gate; 

The dappled dawn with b!ood-red glow 
Folds back the dome of night. 
And bids brave youth to sight 
The golden vista of his dreams. 

Acknowledging no Sphinx-like fate; 
But fires with zeal the restless soul 

With mighty thoughts and deeds sublime 
To lioldly shun the wrecks of time, 

And set above the stars his goal. 

Hail, lad, full verdant lies the field; 

Hear ye the song of pagan dawn ! 
Its echo sweet calls youth 
To fight for name and truth; 
Tis shame to sleep the morning through. 

When earth needs men, and cowards yield 
Their birth-right; then let's not delay 

Silenus-like deep in the cup 
Of self-consuming woe; but up 

And glory in the break of day. 

Hail, lad, wide open stands the everlasting gate: 
Are ye wed to eternity or lifeless fate ?

Opening Address 

pleasure is not entirely lacking when 
one realizes that he has succeeded in 
unraveling another difficult problem 
of nature, a problem which has per- 
haps baffled many of his predeces- 
sors. Ultimate knowledge is in itself 
a reward for many investigators. 

When the situation is looked at in 
this manner, many of the old preju- 
dices disappear. The conflict of sci- 

prominent jurists of today has well 
said, "These things contain within 
themselves the seeds of their own de- 
struction; and that destruction will 
Anally prove medicinal, bitter to the 
mouth, but sweet to the belly." 

However, it is such thinking we 
must avoid. It is only because we 
have avoided much of it that we no 
longer stand in the darkness of the 
Middle Ages. We have learned in col- 
lege the value of liberty in thought 
and act alike. We should think well on 
these things, and endeavor to put them 
into practice. We may see the dawn 
of a new era in America, in the world 
possibly. In such an event, that well- 
known quality of common sense must 
be our compass. Intolerance, be it in 
whatever field you please, must go by 
the board. Intolerance, plus dogma 
(which is merely a special form of 
superstition), spell slowness with ref- 
erence to the progress of humanity. 
The age of their domination is pass- 
ing, and may we, the youth of the na- 
tion, hasten it! ,.

The one principle which has sur- 
vived throughout the history of ration- 
al thought seems to be that the object 
of life is happiness. The person who 
seeks it may take the path of tyranny 
or tolerance, loyalty or treachery, li- 
centiousness or morality, religion or 
atheism; but each is using his own 
particular formula for ' attaining the 
goal of happiness, whether or not he 
is successful in his attempt. There- 
fore, since there is no prescribed 
method for attaining the final objec- 
tive, it is permissible to introduce sci- 
ence as an aid to solving the problems 
of living and hence as an important 
possession for a citizen of the modern 

For the purpose of deciding the 
adaptability of science to social prob- 
lems, there should be an explanation 
of that .unusual group of sensations 
which are experienced when the word 
science is brought before the mind. 
Just what is science, and what is its 
function in the world of human af- 
fairs? After four years of contact 
with the field of science in general. I 
have come to the conclusion that its 
structure is composed of two equally 
important factors, classified observa- 
tions and common sense. Why is it 
any more scientific for an engineer to 
state what electric current will flow 
when he turns on his generators than 
for a fisherman to predict correctly 
at what time the tide will turn ? "Tie ; 

engineer has more details to consider j minded, prejudiced individuals with 
and predicts with higher accuracy, but ! the aid of a few newspaper reporters

on the fact that the result has never one against his subject, regardless of

the guest of honor, and speaker of 
the evening. The Dean was given a 
warm welcome by the members of the 
Club, for he is one of the most popular 
men on the college faculty. He is 
greatly beloved by undergraduates, 
alumni, and in fact by all men who 
are fortunate enough to come in con- 
tact with him. Part of the welcome 
was in the form of a rousing Bowdoin 

The Dean spoke at some length 
upon a subject which he expects to 
give fuller treatment in his annual 
report. The subject of the Dean's ad- 
dress was "What can Bowdoin do for 
the sensitive, shy type of man (In 
particular this type df man suffering 
from a severe inferiority complex) ?" 
During his remarks he expressed a 
word of appreciation in behalf of the 
men who had worked so faithfully 
to organise a Bowdoin Club in Essex 
County, and congratulated these men 
upon the success of this, the first 
meeting of the Club. 

Following his excellent address he 
presided over a lively "fOnaa," at 
which time a number of questions 
concerning current activities at the 
College came up for discussion by 
members present. 

The meeting closed with the singing 
of "Bowdoin Beata". It was the gen- 
eral feeling of those present that the 
newly organized Bowdoin Club of Es- 
sex County had gotten away to a fine

ence versus everything else is a myth 
after both sides of the question are 
understood. Of course, there are as 
many dogmatic scientists as there are 
theologians; but that is no reason to 
suppose that either is representative 
in his field. One of these narrow- 

been observed to fail in the past. Sci 
ence freely) admits that it is a mechan- 
ical tool built on experience and human 
cleverness. It is using facts and 
reason to create the most powerful 
and far-reaching weapon of man for 
solving his various problems. The in- 
tricate machines and agonizing mathe- 
matics, which are so incomprehensible 
to the layman, are -inventions of the 
human mind to deal with the scien- 
tist's problems. Such highlv refined 
tools are for the technician in his field. 
An understanding of science for the 
purpose of applying it to life involves 
only a knowledge of its methods and 

And there is a science to life, just 
as there is a romance to science. Sci- 
entific methods of investigation ex- 
clude all but cold facts from an experi- 
ment as such: but the romance is not 
barred when it comes to the personal 
pleasure and satisfaction of having ac- 
complished something more which has 
a definite application to the problem 
of human comfort, although the appli- 
cation may be far removed from the 
apparatus in the laboratory. Indeed, 

his good intentions. Care must be ex- 
ercised that an opinion is not drawn 
from such sources. 

We are using scientific methods con- 
stantly in our every day life, although 

some would vigorously deny it. An 
academic course is not a prerequisite, 

because science, a product of the hu- 
man mind, is the natural recourse of 
leason when an obstacle is encoun- 
tered. In the first place we rely con- 
stantly upon the regularity of natural 
events, the succession of certain 
causes and effects, in a word the in- 
tegrity of nature without 'ever stop- 
ping to wonder why. because experi- 
ence has never failed to substantiate 
these opinions. In the face of a seem- 
ing incongruity or unusual difficulty, 
we do exactly as the scientist does — 
we use the facts of our experience plus 
the wonderful reasoning power of the 
human mind to seek a solution to the 

If the motor of an automobile fads, 
what is the reaction of the driver in 
case he is far from a trained assis- 
tant? We will suppose that he has 
sufficient ambition not to give up after 

a useless recourse to the starter. He 
collects the facts of the case, an ex- 
tremely scientific procedure. He re- 
calls that the pleasant hum of the mo- 
tor was immediately interrupted with- 
out any coughing or sputtering. In 
that event he infers the gasoline feed 
is probably not to blame. He recalls 
the importance of the ignition, looks 
at his battery as a first attempt, and 
finds the copper lead wire entirely cor- 
roded. The remaining wire will not 
reach: experience tells him that cop- 
per will carry electricity; reason sug- 
gests that another metal might; a 
scrap of iron wire, from a fence pos- 
sibly, is put across the gap; and an- 
other business man has shown at least 
a speaking acquaintance with scientific 
methods. Similar cases are innum- 

But our worst problems fall in the 
mental and social sphere, where more 
abstract remedies must be employed. 
In such a case, what elements of sci- 
ence can the average person apply to 
life ? The answer in general depends 
on the person; but there are two prin- 
ciples in particular which can be easily 
used by the most unskilled. The first 
is an impersonal, unprejudiced willing- 
ness* to accept proved facts: the second 
is the use of common sense and reason 
instead of the ever ready emotions. 
The first needs no explanation. The 
principle of rational thought requires 
qualification to this extent One must 
avoid overemphasizing technical logic 
until he runs into senseless conclu- 
sions as did the Ancients with their ar- 
guments about Achilles and the Tor- 
toise and the problem of the arrow 
and the target. We know that Achilles 
caught the tortoise; we know that the 
arrow reached the target, so the first 
principle about facte precludes such 
weird considerations. 

The application of reason and of 
willingness to accept facts is self ex- 
planatory- The one and only opponent 
is the rigid phalanx of social rules wad 
standards, better known as conven- 
tions and religious restrictions, which 
are about as bothersome as they are 
inefficient. Someone will say — those 
were made up according to reason for 
the purpose of improving society and 
are still solving our difficulties. Both 
true statements! But when were they 
first invented, and how good a solution 
do they present at the present time? 
If society is so happy under them, why 
is there such tremendous and growing 
opposition ? All agitation of a serious 
nature is the result of a definite stress, 
of irritation. When the standards were 
made, scientists were still fighting 
over the formula for water. B sjsj sjs j 
has advanced: society for the greater 
part has stood still. How could the

The western world has been 
long absorbed in observing the Rus- 
sian economic revolution to give due 
heed to the other aspects of the Soviet 
reorganisation. We are just beginning 
to understand and marvel at what we 
1 ha ught to be the Five fear Plan 
when we discover a Five Year Plan 
of Atheism has been launched. The 
movement is indeed far from mythi- 
cal, for it already embraces over two 
million souls and wears the cool au- 
dacious title of the Alliance of the 
Militant Godless. 

Such a title startles us by its very 
uniqueness. Yet already ample funds 
for propaganda are available; the or- 
ganization prides itself on its feverish 
and effective attack upon all religion; 
its influence in the schools is powerful 
if not audacious; and the crowning 
feature is the printing of an Encyclo- 
pedia of Atheism. 

Although the Alliance of the Mili- 
tant Godless represents merely one 
small phase of the Russian anti-re- 
ligious activity, its militaristic meth- 
ods attract our attention to the tot- 
tering church in the Soviet Union. 
The apparent collapse of religion ir. 
Rossis may be attributed to innumer- 
able causes, nevertheless the funda- 
mental motives driving the professed 
atheists are few in number. 

Peter the Great became, with all 
succeeding Czars the head of both 
Church and State. Henceforth the 
Church became the chief support of 
the autocratic government, if not its 
subservient tool. During the Revolu- 
tion revolt against the Czarist state 
involuntarily meant revolt against the 
Orthodox Church. The atrocities com- 
mitted against organized religion in 
the early days of the Revolution, 
therefore, had as their direct motiva- 
tion not anti-religious but political 

Moreover, the decay and inherent 
weakness of the Church can not be 
overlooked in the study of this initial 
collapse. In retrospection we may 
now say that the Church had devel- 
oped a tremendous growth of artificial 
extemalism at the expense of real 
spiritual perfection. The church 
acquired pomp, riches, power, but it 
lost its soul In so doing. Such evi- 
dence as this has prompted Dr. E. J. 
Dillon to state "the Russian Church 
was a museum of liturgic Antiquities." 
The Orthodox Church became based 
more and more upon form, the mir- 
acle, magic, ceremony. Religion could 
hardly be expected to be associated 
with the inner mocqyf the individual, 
but rather with an External act. That 
individual' psychological experience, 
that inner mood, is the very life of re 
ligion; y.w apparently, Russia's rit- 
. ualistk cwetaonies offered few op- 
portunities! for its development. The 
average Russian was essentially 
paganlstic at heart. With the de- 
struction of a few of his sacred im- 
plements of worship, it was inevitable 
that his faith should be jeopardised. 
His loyalty to religion and the Church 
were nil after the first slight wave of 
skepticism and general attack. 

Thus we may explain the collapse 
of the Orthodox Church. But why 
the indiscriminate Soviet opposition to 
all religion— Protestant, Roman Cath- 
olic, Jewish, and Mohammedan ? Such 
an open attack can best be explained 
by understanding first that all re- 
ligion is incompatible with the phil- 
osophy of Russian Communism. Soviet 
Communism considers religion aa an 
instrument of the upper els sees used 
to drug the minds of the proletariat 
and to perpetuate their exploitation. 

In their opinion religion teaches the 
exploited utter passivity through faith 
in a better life beyond the grave. 
Such a conception of religion as a 
consoling agent capable of instilling a 
feeling of satisfaction within the 
minds of the lower classes flies di- 
rectly in the face of the Communist 
ideal which seeks greater equality of 
opportunity here on this earth. Any 
religion with a conception of God is 
considered as a mere superstition, 
the opiate of the people. , 

Communism recta upon the absolute 
loyalty to a cause. There can be no 
divided allegiance between that cause 
and God. Loyalty to God and loyalty 
to individual conscience, the two pil- 
lars of all Christian religions in gen- 
eral, are thus incompatible with Com- 
munist belief. The materialistic eco- 
nomic struggle seems to have for the 
time being all the "religion" that is 
essential to the Bolshevist; for him it 
embodies faith, hope, patience, co- 
operation, and love for fellow men. 
What else is essential ? 

The decay of the Orthodox Church 
and the irreconcilability of religion 
with Communistic dogma are enough 
to effect the inevitable disintegration 
of religion in Russia. But the con- 
scious organisation against religion is 
formidable, and for that reason places 
the church in a peril unparalleled in 
the history of the civilized world. The 
conflict is indeed one-sided, for behind 
this anti-religious attack is all the 
concentrated wealth, power, and prop- 
aganda of a determined semi-dictator- 
ship which controls the lives of all 
human beings through the regulation 
of the economic factors of the na-. 

Soviet Russia recognizes in the light 
of history that to issue an edict 
against actual religious worship would 
result in strengthening the f>ith of the 
remaining believers. Consequently, 
slthough elaborate decrees remove all 
social and cultural activities from the 
churches, free worship is not denied. 
It is much simpler and more effective 
to formulate new ideas in young 
pliable minds than it is to attempt 
widespread purgation. With this in 
mind the educational program is un- 
dertaken with the firm conviction that 
all religion is the result of super-im- 
posed training. The triumph of pure 
science must be assured, and the re- 
moval of every vestige of belief in 
God must be guaranteed. The prime 
requisites of all teachers in Soviet 
Russia are beliefs in science and 

The results are disheartening. Sher- 
wood Eddy, a recent visitor to Bow- 
doin, mentions often the many re- 
ligious meetings he conducted with 
large groups of Russian students be- 
fore the Revolution. Now he admits 
that it would be of the utmost dan- 
ger to himself and students to at- 
tempt to hold similar discussion with 
even four or five students. The young 
people have not that intellectual free- 
dom which we in America consider to 
be the crowning feature of our aca- 
demic life. As one high Russian offi- 
cial expressed it, "students do not 
do and believe what they will but what 
they are told, and we propose to tell 

By controlling the formative, plas- 
tic, and often skeptical days of youth, 
the soviet organisation finds its anti- 
religious attack effective and lasting. 
Gradually, quietly, and positively such 
methods are undermining the founda- 
tions of religion for the coming gen- 

Surely the forces against religion in 
Russia are tremendous and the hope 
for the immediate future is not 
bright. But we may indeed question 
what is religion. Pure and simple,

"Intelligo ut credam" (I understand 
in order that I may believe) was the 
motto of those ■ medieval scholastics 
who sought to justify the use of logic 
and its application to theological 
dogma. In those days, a conflict exist- 
ed between this doctrine and the 
"Credo ut mtelligam" (I believe in or- 
der that I may understand) ot» the 
theologians. Many men have tried to 
reconcile these two. but in spite of 
their efforts, the old struggle has kept 
•breaking out And we see it again in 
the conflicts which exist today between 
natural science and theology. We are 
taught in science to accept nothing as 
fact without definite proof. Can we 
reconcile this with the "Credo ut intel- 
ligam" taught by theology? 

Delving into history, we see Chris- 
tian theology a powerful and dominant 
factor in medieval life. Ruling with a 
practically undisputed sway, the dic- 
tates of the Church or of the univer- 
sity theologians often modified the 
courses of empires. And then interest 
in the study of natural science, mori- 
bund since the days of the Greek Nat- 
ural Philosophers, was again awak- 
ened. These early scientists saw things 
in a different spirit from that of the 
theologians. They even were so bold 
as to contradict such authorities as 
Aristotle and Galen. The next step 
was to contradict the Bible itself. The 
theologians Quickly saw that this new 
type of inquiry was dangerous to cer- 
tain of the tenets of their creeds. 

The logical result was conflict, and 
its influences -are vet being felt. An 
early example of this i« seen when, in 

1600, Giordano Bruno is burnt at the 
stake for his heresies, chief among 
which was a belief in an evolution 
! more or less contradicting the account 
in Genesis. We see another instance 
when Galileo, in the early seventeenth 
century, is haled before the Inquisition 
for maintaining that the earth was not 
fixed, but capable of motion around the 
sun. In both cases, these men broke 
with certain established traditions of 
the theologians. In both cases, we see 
the attitude which the theologians 
were to take toward scientific investi- 

To meet this new situation, the the- 
ologians determined to repress science. 
Investigators were punished, even per- 
secuted, but to no avail. The words 
attributed to Galileo as he arose, after 
finishing his enforced recantation of 
the doctrine of the earth's motion— 
"e pur si muove" (nevertheless it 
moves) illustrate the effect of this atti- 
tude of theology. It was powerless to 
prevent some men from thinking along 
scientific lines; it was powerless to 
prevent these men from affecting oth- 
ers; it was powerless to prevent the 
discovery, and the publication, of sci- 
entific truths which contradicted sup- 
posed facts connected with orthodox 
beliefs; it was powerless, in short, to 
prevent the growth of science. 

And todav what is happening? Is 
this old conflict still going on? "It is 
of course. We have but to look about 
us, at the Pope's recent Encyclical.

Class Poem 

James Byers Colton, 2nd, '31 

Beginnings, now, and endings: these last days 

Of time so brief and precious unity 

Can mean too much for saying. If perchance 

In future years we learn to heed the strong 

Far-sounding call of one whom we all know 

As Alma Mater, till in echoed strength 

Its poignant volume fills our wakened hearts, 

'Twill be enough ; for we shall answer it. 

At last has come the time when we must yield 
Our places here to others yet untried 
In college class and field. To them we leave 
All this fair campus, with its breathing pines, 
These ivied halls, to learning dedicate, 
But fairer still, this heritage we share, 
This heritage of Bowdoin's soul : Fair Play, 
A Thirst for Wisdom, and Good-Fellowship. 

Here have we lived the fullest life we knew. 
Here have ws>won and lost and tried the fight 
Again, till we should know how much of life 
Is losing, and how little winning is. 
Here the deep spirit of the college rose 
And grew within us, nurturing the best 
That we had brought to her. Here we have striv'n 
To see life steadily and see it whole. 

Bowdom, as sons from thy proud lineage sprung. 

We do not hope to elimb Olympian heights 

To deathless fame, nor yet to occupy 

The seats of might and power. Rather would we 

Be men, men worthy of thee, going forth 

To right what wrongs we may, to comfort where 

A gentle hand is needed, to pursue, 

Brothers with all mankind, a true ideal.

hut decade, to see it all too clearly. 
Almost daily, it seems, facts are being 
discovered which are not in harmony 
with many religious beliefs and which 
affect, many moral and aesthetic 

Wither will all this lead ? If science 
continues t« advance, to make new dis- 
coveries which expand the field of the 
factual, will the spiritual field be re- 
duced to a nonentity? And if this 
should happen, what can science offer 
as a substitute for our moral and 
aesthetv values? 

The \ v>rld of science is one of facts, 
of definite and tangible things. Theol- 
ogy, or religion, deals primarily with 
the spiritual world, with the intangi- 
ble, with ideas and theories which are 
based not so much upon fact as upon 
emotion. And yet. really to reach 
man. religion must descend out of the 
spiritual world, must dip down into the 
world of fact, to provide man with 
something definite which he may 
grasp. It is through these supplemen- 
tary facts that the various orthodox 
creeds of history have been made more 
intelligible and appealing to man. But

(Continued from page 8) 

sages of two thousand years ago pre- 
sent rules of conduct in any detail 
which would surpass the judgment of 
cur own enlightened age? Evolution 
shows -clearly that nothing is eternal; 
change is the very essence of life. A 
section which fitted into the social 
puzzle in the middle ages cannot hope 
to find the same vacancy in modern 
life. Half the progress cannot be ar- 
rested and the remainder assisted in 
its growth. The resulting stress is un- 
bearable. Standardization of society 
in the present day cannot be stretched 
beyond the existing similarities. The 
analogy to natural science is complete 
in this respect. Human nature is be- 
coming too diversified to be crowded 
nto a few compartments in a file of 
artificial restrictions. 

Here we have one of the greatest 
advantages of the scientific method 
in that it allows the recognition of the 
individual without destroying nil 
sense of obligation to the rest of so- 
ciety, something which no other sys- 
tem has ever accomplished. The pat- 
tern of every human being is dif- 
ferent, although there are funda- 
mental elements which are similar up- 
on analysis. Difference in individual 
taste was at least known to exist at 
the time of the old proverb, "One 
man's meat is another man's poison". 
Placing all men under rigidly fixed 
social standards was merely a first 
experiment, the only practical course 
when intelligence had not yet offered 
a superior alternative. It is ready 
to be placed in a glass case for casual 
observation along with other 'anti- 
quated first attempts. Individualism is 
the theme song of the future. The 
hypothetical unity of social problems 
as expounded by religious authority 
has been shattered by scientific analy- 
sis.! Each new situation deserves sep- 
arate treatment with reference, not 
to its traditional or conventional back- 
ground, but to factors which have 
some bearing on the case. If from this 
independent analysis a new unified 
system should be evolved from the 
interrelation of the various separate 
solutions, then and only then is a uni- 
versal standard possible. Moreover, 
the hope of its authors would not be to 
glorify the standard for all posterity 
but to preserve it as long as it should 
be a vital part of the civilization to 
which it is applied. ' ; v 

Not that science can supply the 
element of spontaneity or the mental 
factor to the richness of life! It can. 
however, make the environment favor- 
able to the natural development of 
the mind. Desires, ambitions, friend- 
ship, loyalty, and other concepts of 
this type still elude scientific analysis 
except of a very superficial nature. It 
is. perhaps fortunate that science is 
not able to classify and pin down such 
things as romance and ideals. Al- 
though they are probably nothing 
more than illusions, they contribute 
fully as much to happiness as do 
classified knowledge and control of 
events. Real pleasures are rarely pre- 
dicted mathematically or analysed in 
the laboratory afterward. The great 
task of science, which it so adequately 
fulfills, is the supplying of the pre- 
requisites of mechanical convenience 
and physical well-being to the world 
of matter and proved methods of at- 
tack for abstract social problems. 

It is true that many scientists hold 
the opinion and have the secret hope 
that some day everything will be un- 
ierstood, classified, and controlled un-

conceivable will reduce to familiar

fessionally with his fellow men, the 
scientist is satisfied to present the

vants, remodel the concepts of society 
only as far as his contemporary 
horizons extend, and from that point 
on suggest his method as the most 
fruitful one for other problems still 
unsolved or untouched by science.

present day leader of religious 
thought, are thrown overboard, when 
self -expression and self-development 
are hey words, it may not be without 
profit to consider the importance of 
certain other qualities which seem to 
have been pretty much neglected these 
past few years and which perhaps can 
near restatement. 

First of all in such a survey 
comes the virtue of self discipline. As 
we grow older, we learn in how many 
and varied ways life leys its dis- 
cipline upon us through frustrated 
hopes, through sickness, through sor- 
row. But it is not the discipline of 
life with which we are concerned, nor 
is this tho time or place to discuss 
the vexed and open question of the val- 
ue of disciplinary studies, of discipline 
in education. Self-discipline means 
rather that process whereby a man 
takes himself in hand, examines and 
recognises his f suits and weaknesses 
and endeavors so far as he can to over- 
come, them. As a nation we Ameri- 
cans have many merits; but we are 
not self -disciplined. We too often spoil 
our children and we too often act 
liked spoiled children ourselves. We 
pass rapidly from unbridled optimism 
to deep despair. If we cannot have 
our wsy with other nations we wont 
play. Now all these are traits of the 
undisciplined. As the President of 
the United States recently pointed 
out, we need more steadiness, more 
steadfastness. We need to have as an 
ideal those fine words of Shakespeare 
in Hamlet's eulogy of Horatio: 

"A man that fortune's buffets and 

Hath ta'en with equal thanks." 

There are indeed many signs that 
nationally and internationally our life 
is being weakened by the lack of dis- 
cipline. Nor should we forget the 
words of a recent writer: "Discipline 
is usually a condition precedent to 
great sccomplishment". It is equally 
true that self -discipline is the founda- 
tion of a free, well ordered and useful 

Closely skin to self -discipline, indeed 
dependent upon it and ~ proceeding 
from it is self-control. There has 
never been a time when it has been 
more desirable for sermons to be 
u sa ml u n th e Oaa t r "He that ruleth 
his spirit is better than he that taketh 
a city". The astounding increase in 
crimes of violence may be attributed 
to many different causes but centers 
in the incontrovertible fact that hun- 
dreds of people, particularly young 
people, young girls and young boys,

have not learned to control their pas- 
sions. There may be economic rea- 
sons for the great number of broken 
homes that are strewn over this coun- 
try like wreckage on the sea; but wc 
cannot escape from the fact that a 
very potent cause is the lack of aelf 
control, particularly amongst people 
of middle age. We are not willing to 
exercise that discipline of self which 
brings about self-control, and so we 
seek through legislation what we have 
despaired of accomplishing by moral 
suasion. Very little is ever said in 
behalf of that true temperance which 
comes from self -control. And we 
find that even some branches of the 
Christian church advocate artificial 
limitations of certain passions rather 
than preach and teach the efficacy of 
control of self through the disciplined 
will. And then again in mob' action, 
in mob psych o l ogy , fa the emotional- 
ism of the crowd, there are signs 
•rain of the breakdown in that moral 
control of self which distinguishes 
men from the mere animal and an 
educated man from a moron. Yet 
there are plenty of examples all 
around us of man and women who in 
the midst of great difficulty and 
hardship are rulers of their own 
spirits. During the present period of 
depression and unemployment hun- 
dreds and thousands of American 
worlringmen with families dependent 
upon them, not knowing in the least 
where the next job is coming from, 
or indeed if there is to be a next job, 
have shown such r e stra int and pa- 
tience and self-control as would put 
to shame those richer members of 
society who because they have to ex- 
change a Rolls Royee for a Packard 
wail as if the end of the world were 
come. Persons lacking self-control, 
whether old or younav are not to be 
trusted in times of stress and anxiety. 
And the man or woman who has not 
in youth learned to conquer self-in- 
dulgence has a pretty hard task later 
in life if he wishes then to practice 
self-control. The trouble with so 
many young people both in college 
and outside — so many I say, not per- 
haps the majority — is that they are 
so insistent on their right to happi- 
ness and a good time, so restless in 
their pursuit of pleasure, that before 
they know it the chance to rule their 
own spirit has slipped by and they are 
likely to be chronic weaklings, men 
and women who will never grow up. 
There is no weakness about self-con- 
trol; on the contrary it is the sign 
of a master. We read of Washing- 
ton, that he was a man of strong pas- 
sions well controlled. And in the wel- 
ter of confused morals with which we 
are at present perhaps for our sins 
afflicted, we need to go back for re- 
freshment and renewal of strength to 
some of the old-fashioned ways, the 
ways of the Ten Commandments and 
the straight and narrow way. In an- 
other age perhaps man may have his 
fling; today he needs desperately to 
exercise self-control. 

A man who keeps himself well in 
order and under firm control is able to 
meet with equanimity the "slings and 
arrows of outrageous fortune" and to 
make himself a fit instrument of serv- 
ice. He is on the way, too, to de- 
velop that characteristic which is the 
mark of a strong individual-self- 
respect. Youth is apt, I think, to 
minimise the importance of so living 
that one can retain not merely the 
respect of others but the respect of 
one's better self. Thoughtless, if 
sometimes generous impulses, often 
run riot and do no great harm. But 
it is as true today as ever that high 
standards of honor bring their own 
reward, and departure from those 
standards entail punishment and dis- 
aster. Tho old adage of Bishop 
Berkeley, which is a good answer 
to rumor and gossip— "They say, what 
they say; let them say", is often 
salutary and helpful. But the real 
question is not what others say or 
think about us but what wo know

This is not by any 
to be inte r pr e t e d as 
ity or con f o rmit y to 
aids or conventions, 
means the enact opposite. It mar at 
times if cons cience ihsjiuai lend to 
en attitude of Athanasius against the 
world, of Luther when he said, "My 
conscience is taken captive by God's 
word and I neither can nor win revoke 
anything, seeing it is not safe or right 
to act against conscience, God help- 
ing me, I cannot do otherwise.'* Af- 
ter all is not such an attitude nobler 
than the desire so often expressed 
nowadays to live one's own life, re- 
gardless of conscience, regardless of 
duty and obligation? 

Perhaps this emphasis on the trin- 
ity of virtues, self-discipline, self- 
control, self-respect, will seem to 
some of you rather repressive. In 
reality it is the real road to liberty. 
No man is free if he is a slave to his 
p as s i ons or whims, if he is not in con- 
trol of Ids emotions and desires, if he 
is troubled and hampered by con- 
science. He is not free unless he gives 
himself to a great cause that will 
completely peaseas him. There is a 
world of truth m the ancient para- 
dox "God's service is perfect free- 
dom.'' One of the most pitiful ob- 
jects on the face of the globe is the 
young man or young woman uadisci- 
pttned, rootless, without moral 
stamina, with an easy job or an easy 
time or easy money as the goal, with- 
out thought of the real value of life 
but with a vague desire to be inde- 
pendent of all obligation. It was not 
from men and women such as these 
that tide nation was co n ce i ved and 

Indeed wo need to cultivate again 
the very real virtues of the pioneer. 
We have to be sure conquered the 
wilderness and filled the land with 
buildings and inventions and institu- 
tions derived for the comfort and ma- 
terial prosperity of man. It is our 
task now to see that the great ma- 
chine of civilisation which we have 
erected does not turn upon us and 
crush us. The days ahead are preg- 
nant with change. They call for serv- 
ice from men and women who are in- 
telligent, reasonable, courageous. If 
we allow our political life to be domi- 
nated by demagogues and our indus- 
try to be controlled by standpatters, 
and our spiritual and moral standards 
to be determined by the new pagan- 
ism, we are heading again for an- 
other Dark Age. The preservation of 
the best that our modern civilisation 
has produced, the perpetuity of the 
best that our American system of gov- 
ernment has brought forth* is a task 
that calls for the exercise of all our 
talents and all our devotion. That 
is why at this particular time it is 
so important for the individual, espe- 
cially for the young man and the 
younjf woman, to equip himself for 
the conflict ahead. For it is a very 
real conflict and there is very real 
danger. And as in all such conflicts in 
the past the issue goes home to the 
individual. If we as individuals are 
unconcerned by the great economic 
and social changes that are going on, 
if we as individuals are recreant to 
our individual responsibility, we shall 
wake up one day and find our future 
in the hands of those who have been 
able to gain power because of our 
lack of wisdom and foresight and 
energy. But if we are sensible of our 
individual responsibility as citizens 
and as sons of God, the future is ra- 
diant with hope. There is a verse in 

Mason had sained the lushest honors 
for those of the srraduatmsr class ma- 
jorimr in Philosophy. Upon looking- 
him up Cluett found that Mason has 
just secured a position as "'■«»» in 
the Consolidated Tube Corporation and 
will start work next September. So 
one can never tell how low he may faU. 
Rather: the purpose of these class day 
exercises is to brine; the class together 
for a last celebration in College and 
make the day one of real friendship 
and cordiality. 

For this particular part of the cere- 
monies, I hope everyone will realise 
that I am trying) to deliver a class ora- 
tion. Despite the nature of the sub- 
ject matter. I hope no one will miscon- 
strue my good intention by taking- the 
oration for a political campaign 
speech. A short time ago one of the 
class orators told me the following ex- 
perience which he had after finish ing 
his oration. Upon leaving the plat- 
form, he was approached by an old 
lady who expressed great appreciation 
of his discourse. "Why. my boy," she 
said, "you can never know what your 
oration has meant to me. It was just 
line water to a drowning man. 

Having utilised my four years of 
college drudgery with the object of 
studying the political and social devel- 
opment of human society. I now wish 
to astonish my professors by demon- 
strating to them the extent of my ig- 
norance in making an approach to a 
subject upon which many modern his- 
torians have devoted much of their 
lifetimes differing with each other. I 
suppose I could very well, indeed, take 
this opportunity to make suggestions 
for improvements for the College and 
criticisms of the many phases of Bow- 
doin including such matters as compul- 
sory chapel, the alumni, or even the 
faculty. On this last aspect however 
I shall suspend judgment until after 

Not wishing to speak ideal aspects 
of college life. I shall devote my ora- 
tion perhaps to what many people call 
tiie greatest ideal of all and that is— 
in the direction of world peace. One 
of the greatest questions confronting 
the nations today in the preservation 
of peace is whether or not history will 
repeat itself and again bring forth a 
great world crisis involving all nations 
of the earth — whether the underlying 
forces of European alignments and the 
struggle for supremacy sad balance 
of power will finally end in an even 
greater conflict than that of 1914. 

At the outbreak of the World War. 
the whole of Europe was divided off 
into two great opposing groups of na- 
tions. The only nation standing aloof 
from all the others wss Great Britain. 
That Empire stood between two oppos- 
ing forces, one led by the German Em-

in vivid form this great lesson:

That is a figure of personal re-

concern into action coc|ributes his

Ones more tho Class of 1981 are 
fathered together— this time for the 
last jo voad celebration. This class day 
of ours is a matter of great impor- 
tance. It marks a culmination of a 
period of academic training and prep- 
aration for future vocations. It is also 
one of the few occasions on which we 
have been able to meet together and 
a real spirit of class friend- 
The occasion however should 
not be one of reviewing primarily the 
training and intellectual powers which 
we have acquired here during the last 
four years. Nor should it he one for 

of how 
te make of the 
tion we have received In his 1 

alliance. After the formation of these 
two diplomatic combinations, jealousy 
and suspicion took possession of the 
problems of international relations 
and transported them far beyond the 
ordinary channels of arbitration. 

This movement for alliances began 
with Bismarck after the Franco-Prus- 
sian War of 1871. Bismarck felt the 
necessity of preparing Germany 
against a future war of revenge. The 
alliance first included Austria, then 
Italy, and eventually the other nations 
of Central Europe. In opposition to 
this movement. France believed that 
by a system of alliances and the pos- 
sibility of upsetting the balance of 
power, she would regain her lost pres- 
tige sad force Germany to make con- 
cessions. Yet with all of these national 
suspicions and plottings against each 
other, one is astonished) after survey- 
ing the history of Eu rop e before 1914 
in discovering that the real material 
disputes between those two nations 
hid ceased to exist All the dangers 
of war then lurked in the aflianraa. 
France had practically acquired 
Morocco and Germany needed to he 
awarded only some form of compen- 
sation. The great danger ahead lay 
in the inevitable situation, when each 
nation, rather than to break the 
bounds of alliance, would be forced by 
the a ggr esso r into a world conflict re- 
gardless of the nature of the dispute. 
This is just what happened. And the 
irony of it all lay in the fact that in 
Notes. Jaek Cluett such a system of alliances the 
lotmitlj related the story of Charlie . nation as well as the largest, the 
of last year's honor imprudent ss wen as the 

"Plato, SninosaJwas capable of originating a 

war. The first shot fired would be a 
signal for a general conflagration. The 
diplomatic situation was irresistibly 
defined by s military system which 
Germany on one side had prepared in 
secret agreements with Austria and 
with France on the other in secret 
agreements with Russia. As a conse- 
quence Russia took advantage of her 
alliance with France to force her solu- 
tion of the problem of the straits. 
Since this particular maneuver was 
diametrically opposed to the interests 
of the central powers, war became in- 
evitable Consequently just at a tune 
when an attempt should have been 
made to loosen the bonds of these al- 
liances by diplomacy, the action taken 
by Russia and supported by France 
tended to draw them closer together 
by the menace of a common danger. 

Thus two formidable machines fac- 
ing each other and once the occurrence 
of an international crisis had been est 
in motion, the forces of a great con* 
flict could not be restrained. Great 
Britain herself, despite her many as- 
sertions of independence of action, 
was actually bound by plana of col- 
laboration, official promises, and defi- 
nite assurances to France. Thus the 
whole of Europe had acted in the 
wrong way for the pres erva tion of 
peace. Each of the great nations had 
played its part in bringing about war. 
Instead of solving the matter by 
peaceful diplomacy each had suc- 
cumbed to the influence of military 
agreements and official promises. 

Once having fought a world war one 
would suppose that the nations of the 
world should have learned a lesson. 
But no sooner was it over than the 
question of security and balance of 
power began to haunt the minds of 
European statesmen. Almost simul- 
taneously with the close of the War. 
France looked to the new states cre- 
ated out of the old for the formation 
of alliances. Her agreements with 
Belgium and Poland mean that in case 
of war with Germany the armies of 
the allied powers will; act together re- 
gardless of the nature of the con- 
troversy. Other alliances are formed 
against Bulgaria and Hungary. The 
history of Europe previous to 1914 
demonstrates that alliances which be- 
gan by being defensive easily and in- 
evitably become offensive. Secrecy 
arouses the suspicion of other nations 
and makes the control of public opin- 
ion impossible. If the nations of the 
world are to have a new regime of 
international peace, the traditional 
diplomacy of pre-war years must be 
adandoned. The support of mistaken 
policies should be forsaken by the peo- 
ples of 'all countries for the good of 

The correct origins of all wars and 
especially that of 1914 should become 
familiar to the citizens of every na- 
tion, first of all in the higher inter- 
ests of truth, but also for reasons 
which concern the peace of the world. 
Should the nations continue their pre- 
war diplomacy and present-day policy, 
it is only a question of repeating the 
horror that has gone before. If the 
world is to take any steps st all in the 
right direction of peace, the nations 



Alumni Day. Wednesday, was the 
fullest and most active day of the 
week. It included such regular meet- 
ings as that of the Alumni Council in 
Massachusetts Hall at 9.30 and of the 
Alumni A ssocia ti on at 1.30 in the 
Moulton Union. Both the Alumni As- 
sociation and the Society of Bowdoin 
Women held luncheons at 1&30. the 
first mentioned in the Union and the 
second at 8 CleaveUnd street, the 
headquarters of the Society. 

The annual meeting of Phi Beta 
Kappa. Alpha of Maine, was at 11.00. 
at which time the elections were held 
for this year. Initiation ceremonies 
for the newly-elected were conducted. 

One of the highlights of the day was 
the second annual "indoor baseball'' 
game on the Delta, which has sup- 
planted the Bowdoin-Bates game of 
past years. The contest b etween the 
clas s es of *21 and "20 furnished plenty 
of thrills and many laughs. 

An organ recital by Professor Wsss 
at the College Chapel at 3 o'clock, a 
band concert on the campus at 4.30, 
and the regular reception by the Presi- 
dent and Mrs. Sills on the terrace of 
the Moulton Union at 4.00 concluded 
the program of scheduled events for 
the afternoon.

The Class of 1891, which is holding 
its Fortieth Reunion, is quartered in 
Hyde Hall. There are thirty-three 
graduates and Ave non-graduate 
members, including two who are lost. 
The Class held a dinner at the Gurnet 
Wednesday evening, and hopes to 
have a fairly full turn-out for the 
Commencement Dinner on Thursday. 

Though the majority of the class 
are unknown outside their respective 
burroughs, Prof. H. DeF. Smith, head 
of the Greek Department at Amherst, 
C. H. Hastings of the Library of Con- 
gress in Washington, P. C. Newbegin, 
Chief Engineer of the Bangor and

Powers of the Superior Court of 
Maine, would probably rate in the A 
Class. The class boasts seven doc- 
tors, six lawyers, five teachers, one 
clergyman, one chemist, one civil en- 
gineer, two editors, with a healthy 
residuum of business men. There are 
also three of the Class on the Board 
of Overseers of the College.

will be largely the product of the way 
in which we have planted. The many 
departments of college li*e have all 
been opened to us; old interests have 
been stimulated, new ones aroused, 
and in this process of picking and 
choosing our interests our self- 
knowledge has been growing. 

To Bowdoin we owe a large debt, 
but in our arrogance we feel Bow- 
doin owes a large debt to us. Surely 
our four years have not been passed 
here devoid of all effect upon the col- 
lege, and we, presumptuously, feel our 
influence to have been good. Yet our 
debt to Bowdoin is ereater than hers 
to us. There is a certain academic 
dignity to this little old New England 
college which it is impossible not to 
recognize — a dignity at whose ves- 
tiges we have occasionally scoffed, 
but a dignity which has more ofteu 
stirred within us the secret desire to 
be worthy sons of such a foster 
mother, possessing such a heritage of 
noble names and deeds. It is our wish 
that we may, indeed, "full worthy be

The American elm which is so im- 
portant to the beauty of New Eng- 
land will not last long if the Dutch 
elm disease gets loose here. The 
United States Department of Agri- 
culture has just issued its Circular 
170 describing the danger. The di- 
sease has destroyed many elms in 
Europe and is spreading as far north 
as Norway. The disease has recent- 
ly been found in Ohio, and if present 
in New England should be stamped 
out immediately. If the disease is 
found, or even suspected, twigs anil 
small branches from one-quarter to 
one inch in diameter, and from. five to 
ten inches in length, should be sent 
to the Agricultural Experiment Sta- 
tion, Orono, Me. The chief effects of 
the disease are sudden wilting of the 
leaves, bending of the tips of the 
twigs, brownish discoloration in the 
sap wood, and final death of the tree. 
Specimens should be taken from a 
part of the tree that has recently 
wilted or died and sent securely 
wrapped in paraffined or waxed pa- 
per with a letter giving the location 
of the tree and name of sender.

fall within the admitted realm of sci- 
ence and are therefore liable to scien- 
tific investigation. They are liable to 
question — to contradiction possibly. 

If this happens, if science does show 
some of these supposed facts to be no 
facts at all, what then? What are we 
to do? Are we to renounce our reli- 
gion and say with the cynic. "Vanity 
of vanities, all is vanity!"? Are we 
steadfastly to cling to our old ideas 
and attempt to support our faith by 
the persecution or denial of science? 
Or are we to modify our beliefs, are 
1 we to create a new and living creed, in 
, accordance with the factual teachings 
; of science? 

With the first of these, the renuncia- 
tion of religion, we need have little 
concern. Human nature has a spirit- 

as would the abolition of religion and 
the ignoring of its doctrines have 
proved in the Middle Ages. Man has 
passed the stage of blind acceptance 
of authority, of blind belief: he now 
insists that he understand that which 
he believes. 

Unless, therefore, we can find some 
new species of thought, of which as 
yet we have no conception, which will 
supplant both science and religion, we 
are left with the third course, that we 
should reconcile our religion with our 

Can theology modify its doctrines so 
that they will accord with the facts 
science puts forward? Can science 
keep within bounds and leave to theol- 
ogy the field of spiritual values? It is 
on the answers to these questions that 
any attempt at reconciliation must de-

The marriage of Miss Mary Eliza- 
beth Hormell of this town and Ross 
McDuffee Cunningham of Cambridge, 
Mass., which was solemnized at the 
First Parish Congregational church at 
four o'clock Saturday afternoon was 
largely attended by their many friends 
and relatives. The officiating clergy- 
man was Rev. Thompson E. Ashby, 
who used the single ring service. 

The church organist, Donald E. 
Lewis, for the nuptial music rendered 
the wedding marches from Mendels- 
sohn and Lohengrin, Beethoven's 
Fifth Symphony, Tchaikowsky's An- 
dante Cantabile, and Haydn's Theme 
and Variations. 

The bride was given in marriage 
by her father, Professor Orren C. 
Hormell. She wore a gown of white 
satin with a veil of rose point lace 
and she carried Easter lilies. Her 
maid of honor was Miss Helen Wins- 
low of Newton Center, Mass., her 
roommate and classmate at Wellesley 
College. Miss Winslow's gown was 
of egg shell net over aquamarine, with 
hat to match and she carried talis- 
man roses. 

Miss Rebecca Millett of Beverly, 
Mass., Miss Mary Stackpole and Miss 
Esther Smith of Brunswick and Miss 
Eleanor Skolfield of Boston were the 
bridesmaids. Their gowns were of egg 
shell net over peach color, with peach 
color hats and they carried bouquets 
of snapdragons and larkspur. Miss 
Judith Pease of Dedham, Mass., the 
little flower girl, wore a dress of 
peach color crepe de chene. 

The groom had as his best man his 

.college classmate, Lockett Coleman of 

New York City and the ushers were 

Robert S. Hormell of Brunswick, the 

I brother of the bride, John Meigs of 

{Concord, Mass., a classmate of the 

I groom, George Woodbridge of New 

York City, Roger Ray of Portland, 

I Clifton Sibley of Beverly, Mass., and 

, Thayer Richards of Cambridge, Mass. 



Its Fair Bztv&iok 




these be proved otherwise than they 
seem Why must religion blame sci- 
ence if the testimony of facts negates 
theological dogma? Why must science 
be accused of pushing *rfi«!« f"***' 
and farther hack into the twilight of 
obscurity? Both theology and natural 
are seeking truth, and what 
matters the route as long as the goal 
be the same? 'Granting God'a exist-

of God Himself being pushed back into 
obscurity? Certainly not! The only 
logical view is that such a Being, 
whose existence every creed postu- 
lates, must be aiding — yes, leading — 
this irresistible march of science 
toward truth. 

But although science has accom- 
plished a great deal, there is still one 
field to which it cannot attain. There 
is a definite limit to the possibility of 
its achievements, and this limit coin- 
cides with the rather indistinct 
boundary kntmin the field of the fac-

it is the love of God. Furthermore we 
are told that "religion is devotion to 
a cause which goes beyond the war- 
rant of pure rationality, and it is the 
confidence that the success of the 
cause and of the values associated 
with it is guaranteed by the universe 
itself". From such a viewpoint Com- 
munism can itself be called a religion. 
It formulates, crystallizes, and pre- 
sents a cause that can be proved as 
justified, and in which the Russian has 
utmost faith and much evidence of ac- 

Like all new religions Communism 
derives its power from a small group 
that sees much more beyond that seen 
by the multitude of believers; like all 
religions it is obsessed with a mis- 
sionary ardour — to spread throughout 
the world; and like all new religions it 
believes itself to be the only hope of 
the world — the savior of humanity. 
But has Communism as a religion 
enough "stuff" in it to serve as a suit- 
able substitute for actual religious 
faith? It may be true that the 
Church has never before met what 
it meets in the frigid planning in- 
telligence of the Communist organiza- 
zation. Christianity has survived all 
attacks of the past. But this Atheistic 
Bolshevism is alive, potent, ambitious, 
determined, and above all — intelligent, 
and for the present seems to fit in 
much better with the reorganized 
lives of the Russian masses. 

Two vital questions must be an- 
swered, however, to prove that Com- 
munism is a feasible substitute for re- 
ligion. First, is it efficient enough 
on the material side to guarantee its 
survival? And, second, does this new 
religion satisfy the inner spiritual 
needs of men? The alleged success 
of the economic reorganization ap- 
parently answers the first question. 
But the second— can this new religion 
satisfy man's spiritual needs? is not 
so easy to answer. 

Whatever Russia's destiny, what- 
ever the political and economic suc- 
cess of Communism, faith in that so- 
called religion must wane. It cannot 
but be perverted by the myriad of un- 
solved problems of human life. Re- 
ligion seeks peace, harmony, love, 
adjustment, and salvation — things 
that the human mind has ever sought 
and ever will continue to seek. Such 
ends are emotional and personal; 
practical in a different sense from the 
practicability of applied science. 
Nothing comparable can be found in 
Communist theory. 

Communism is impersonal, collec- 
tive, and not individualistic. What- 
ever goal it presents to prompt the 
immediate faith and devotion of the 
nation of people is materialistic, too 
worldly, and too pragmatical. But 
let the nation of people become habit- 
uated to the ideal order, if it ever can 
be established. Or let them fail in 
their materialistic struggle. In any 
case that ideal will inevitably be as 
gold turned to brass. It will embody 
nothing of real spiritual value for 
humanity, Something higher, some- 
thing more idealistic and lasting will 
be demanded. The Russian soul will 
not rest until it receives that which 
is conducive to sympathy, consola- 
tion, and guiding to the higher values 
of life. That something can only be 
found in what Russia b temporarily 
successful in abolishing; namely, re- 
ligion, and belief in a Higher Power.

Following custom President K 
M. Sills opened the college year last 
Thursday with an address at the first 
chapel. Besides reviewing the stand- 
ing of the college, President Sills 
made some very pertinent remarks as 
to the position and duty" of the college 
student in relation to the present 
economic crisis. "You have no busi- 
ness to be in college unless you are 
serious in your purpose to make your- 
self of some real use in the world — ." 

"The College opens today for its one 
hundred and thirtieth year of service, 
a seivice by no means limited to un- 
dergraduates but for the community 
and state also. A beginning has been 
made, as throwing open the swimming 
pool in the summer for boys and girls 
of the town. Repairs on the buildings 
have gone forward and work on Pick- 
ard Field extended.

The New York Times says 

The football season of 1931 brings 
to our campus one of the best-loved 
figures in New England sporting cir- 
cles. With a decade of eminent suc- 
cess behind him in the coaching field, 
Mr. Linn Scott Wells comes to Bow- 
uoin as varsity mentor of hockey and 
baseball, and assistant to Coach Bow- 
ser in football. His outstanding rec- 
ommendations are the achievements of 
his boys at Fairhaven High School, 
where Wells-coached elevens won | 
twenty-three out of twenty-seven 
games in the last three yetrs. After 
graduation from Springfield College, 
he took up| coaching duties in a rugged 
New York hamlet called Mineville. He 
soon left the miners behind and took a 
position in Locust Valley, L. I., a fash- 
ionable community and the home of 
Harvey Dow Gibson, benevolent trus- 
tee of the College. He coached for 
three years at Bradford, Pa., spent a 
single strenuous year at Bloomsburg, 
Pa., and then answered a call to Fair- 
haven High School in Fairhaven, I 

Baseball-Track Successes . 

Fairhaven's first baseball nine under 
Linn Wells played eighteen (fames and 
won sixteen, becoming undisputed 
champions of the Bristol County Con- 
ference. The following year, after 
they had withdrawn from the circuit, 
they won nine out of fourteen con- 
tests. Only two veterans returned the 
third season, yet Fairhaven split even, 
winning half their fourteen meetings. 

Track teams under Wells swept the 
Bring o. County champinnghiiv in suc- 
cessive years, and never placed worse 
than fifth in the inlerscholastic meets 
in Boston. One of his prominent pupils 
in track was Al Whitworth, who holds 
the Bowdoin Interscholastic Meet pole 
vault record at 12 feet 21 inches. Whit- 
worth soared to new marks at the 
Brown University and N. H. Univer- 
sity Interscholastic Meets, and won 
the University of Pennsylvania Inter- 
scholastic vault with a mark of 12 feet 
5i inches. 

Football Triumphs 

Strict discipline and rigid training 
ruled as applied by Coach Wells result- 
ed in outstanding triumphs by the 
Fairhaven grid teams of 1928, 1920, 
and 1930 seasons. The keynote of the 
Wells strategy was "deception", and 
how well this device employed by 
the light-weight but brainy 1930 
eleven! Bulkier teams from Barn- 
stable, De La Salle (Newport), Fall 
River and Attleboro went down before 
them. Plymouth High, fortified with 
a string of twenty-eight consecutive 
victories, succumbed 13-0 in the same

Disappointment Inevitable 

and Should be Faced 

with Courage 


Tennis Court of English Red Clay 

is Built at Pickard Field 

During Summer 

Curtailment in departmental ex- 
penses of the College did not prevent 
many minor improvements in the 
buildings and campus during the sum- 
mer months, with construction of a 
new tennis court and repairs in Hyde 
and Memorial Halls occupying the 
greatest time. 

Of primary importance was the 
construction of new showers through- 
out Hyde Hall. This installation was 
accompanied by a general strengthen- 
ing of the building. 

Continuing the renovation of Me- 
morial Hall, the exterior has been re- 
decorated and several windows re- 
placed. The lower corridors and 
stairways have all been repainted and 
illuminated, and new facings placed 
on the stairs. 

Added to the college tennis equip- 
ment at Pickard Field is a new court 
of red English clay built at great ex- 
pense. New gates have also been 
constructed in the rear of the fence. 

Extensive masonry work was done 
on the outside of the Science Building 
and the interior was repainted and 
ledecorated. Additions to the Physics 
Laboratory will allow more space for 
the student.-. A new observation 
tower with a wider range of vision 
was also built on the chimney of that 
building for the use of Professor Lit- 
tle's astronomy students. 

A few changes have also been ac- 
complished in the athletic equipment 
of the College. A new auxiliary tank 
has been placed in the swimming pool 
for summer use. There is also a new- 
electrical heater connected with the 
showers to furnish hot water without 
the use of the entire heating plant. 
Pickard Field has been improved still 
more by relevelling. with its use for 
varsity football practice in view.

Candidates for freshman members 
of the Orient news board have been 
asked to report at the publication's of- 
fice in the Union Thursday night, 
October eighth. Early notice of this 
date has been given in order that those 
most interested may know of it. Fine 
opportunities for editorial positions 
are open to anv man desirous and 
capable of composing news articles. 

Applicants should be interested in 
writing, although actual newspaper ex- 
perience is not absolutely necessary. 
Candidates will be given weekly as- 
signments of articles to be printed 
in the paper and criticism of such 
stories will enable the man to learn 
the principles of good news style. 

Sport assignments will be divided 
equally among the freshman report- 
ers, excellency in promptness, cor- 
rectness, and style to be the basis 
for later choice of staff members. The 
applicant should be willing to work 
'diligently on those articles assigned 
to him, with an interest in newspaper 
writing. These characteristics, how- 
ever, together with a capability for 
clear writing, are the onlv qualifica- 
tions for the position. 

Progress from freshman reporters 
to sophomore editors, and later man- 
agerial |x>sitions is based entirely 
upon comparative records of the work 
of the individual. The position of 
editor-in-chief is the culmination of 
the work. 

This notice is intended only for 

those interested in the editorial 

board of the paper. Applications for 

the business staff will be made later 

: in the vear. 


Newcomers Include Three Visiting 

Teachers and Two Regular 


As i text President Sills took one j 
of the interesting analogues from the I 
Old T' stament. It was the story of j 
how tie .Jewish people, triumphant, | 
fresh from their victory over the j 
Egypt ans, wandered for dayg in the I 
wilderness with no water, wandered j 
on derperately only to find that when) 
they reached water it was bitter and 
braekuh. In their failure they turned 
to Mo. es and their God and through a 
miracls the water before them was 
turned to clear sweet drinking water. 

"There are many things in this 
story of practical value and applica- 
ble to our own life. In this year! 
ahead of us there are hound to be I 
disappointments and failures. Bright j 
colors conjured up to paint the fu- 
ture will fade into the light of com- 
mon day. There is a feeling of well- 
being when on the first day we come 
back and meet everyone again, a sort 
of glow of glamor the first day, and 
then 'we pass on to the routine. Our 
expectations are not fulfilled. We do 
not keep the friends we had expected 
to. If we are members of the enter- 
ing class perhaps we do not make 
friends as quickly and as easily as 
we had hoped. The promise of intel- 
lectual life is not filled: there is 
more routine and drudgery than we 
had looked forw.vd to. Is there to be 
disappointment and defeat? 

It is well to prepare for what is to 
follow, to take to heart the lessons of 
life. It will save ourselves and better 
prepare ourselves to meet the diffi- 
culties. Life is after all rather cruel, 
not altogether easy, a dissonance. 
Some find it out eariv and some late 
It is well to face reality. Often dis- 
appointment and failure are for our 
own good. Setbacks and defeats give 
fia strength. Many are the examples 
in biography. Philips Brooks grad- 
uated from Harvard at the head of 
his class. He liked athletics, had a 
noticeable personal charm. After 
graduation he was chosen to teach at 
the Boston Latin School. He went 
there the next fall full of confidence. 
He was a miserable failure. He had 
no control over the boys. In a f ' v 
weeks he resigned. The head of the 
school told him foolishly that if a man 
failed at teaching, he could succeed 
in nothing. Brooks was in misery and 
distress for six months. Elliot, not 
vet president of Harvard and then 
but an instructor, in coming out of a

Bowdoin Team Hard Hit by Graduation and Scholastic 
Difficulties — Four Varsity Veterans Return 
^ to Line-Up 


Coach Charlie (Good Time) Bowser will hurl his Polar Bear 
gridmen against a powerful Massachusetts State eleven at Am- 
herst Saturday in the annual opening fray of the two teams. 
While the erstwhile Aggies have distinguished themselves with a 
50-0 defeat over Cooper Union, the White Bear still remains a 
Dark Horse. 

Pittsburgh's former mentor was faced this fall with the prob- 
lem of constructing a strong eleven out of only four veterans: 
Captain Jit Ricker in the backfield, with his running mate Creigh- 
ton Gatchell, and in the forward wall, Center Johnny Milliken and 
Guardsman Reino Olsen. Ineligibility rulings place Dan Johnson 
definitely out of the conflict, while Lloyd Morrell, all-State full- 
back, originally slated for that position, did not return this fall. 
Plaisted, secondary quarter of the '30 squad, is also on the in- 
active list. 


Brilliant Young Alumnus 

Buried in Pine Grove 


The ratio of one instructor to 
eleven undergraduates is the result 
of augmenting the Bowdoin faculty 
by five new members. These new- 
comers to the teaching department in- 
clude three visiting teachers and two 
regular instructors. 

Oxford University sends Bowdoin 
the 1931 Tallman Foundation lecturer 
in the person of the Rev. Professor 
Maurice Roy Ridley. Prof. Ridley is 
a fellow and tutor at Balliol College, 
Oxford University, and will conduct 
an advanced course, elective for Jun- 
iors and Seniors, on the Poetry of the 
Nineteenth Century. 

Prof. Ridley will concentrate on 
English poets from the close of the 
eighteenth century up to the present 
time, including the quintet of Words- 
worth, Shelley. Keats, Tennyson and 
Arnold. There will also be included 
a study of the theory of poetry, and 
a reading of English verse. 

Fellows in French and Spanish 

To succeed Jacques Biraud. former 
fellow in French who has joined the 
staff of Indiana University. Bowdoin 
has acquired the services of Ivan de 
Tarnowsky. Armigiro Martinez of 
Santiago, Chile, will hold a Bowdoin j

Over Three Thousand Seven Hundred 

Visitors Since 


From June first to the present date 
there have been more than three thou- 
sand seven hundred visitors to the 
Walker Art Building. Among them 
were many specialists including Dr. 
Lyon of Buffalo, N. Y., son of an au- 
thority on American antique furni- 
ture. The object of his attention was 
one of the finest old wainscot chairs 
known to exist in America. This is 
known as the President's Chair be- 
cause, as is the custom in many other 
colleges, the President of Bowdoin 
College sits in this chair during Com- 
mencement Exercises. 

An exhibition of water colors bv 
Winslow Homer has been announced 
for the month of October. The Col- 
lege already owns a fine piece of his 
work on exhibition in the Sophia 
Wheeler Walker Gallery. Its title is 
"The End of the Hunt". 

Recently in the college chapel in the 
presence of friends and relatives, 
were held the funeral services for one 
of the most brilliant and promising 
of Bowdoin's younger alumni, John 
Kimball Snyder, the notice of whose 
sudden death in Freiburg, Germany, 
on August 2 cast a tender grief 
among the many friends whom his 
keen personality had attracted. The 
heart-felt melancholy of the college 
at this untimely death of one "just 
on the threshold of a brilliant aca- 
demic career", was expressed by Presi- 
dent K. C. M. Sills. 

The body was buried August 29 in 
the Bowdoin College lot in the Pine 
Grove Cemetery, where three stu- 
dents of the college were buried near- 
ly one hundred years ago. Many 
friends and relatives were in attend- 
ance at the rites held within the very 
walls of the school which Mr. Snyder 
loved and honored. 

The President expressed the 
thoughts of those who knew the 
young man, in his address at the fu- 
neral in the chapel. "Here in the col- 
lege he loved so well," said the Presi- 
dent "and by his fine work honored 
so much, here in the presence of his 
nearest and dearest, and of repre- 
sentatives of his class and fraternity, 
of his teachers and friends, and of the 
University and College where he 
taught, it is fitting that the last rites 
be said over the body of John Kimball 
Snyder, whose tragic death in Ger- 
many early in August brought wide- 
spread sorrow. The college which has 
seen hundreds of her sons come and 
go, has a peculiarly tender regard 
for this one of her younger sons, just 
on the threshold of a brilliant aca- 
demic career, one who in all his deal- 
ings was so courageous, so hign- 
spirited, so truthful, so sincere, so at 
war with all evil and hypocrisy. And 
today the college desires publicly to 
express to those who knew and loved 
him best its heartfelt sympathy in 
this hour of their great bereavement". 

Mr. Snyder's sudden death was a 
distinct shock to those who knew him. 
He was travelling in Freiburg, Ger- 
many, when stricken by an attack of 
acute paralysis and died after an ill- 
ness of only two days. His body,

But Coach Bowser is assured of a 
swift, driving offense centered around 
| diminutive Captain Ricker, with the 
equally light Backy Bakanowsky at 
his side. Gatchell at quarter and 
Morris Brown at full provide the 
weight for this semi-pony backfield. 
Battles for Line Berths 

Regardless of the telling toll of 
graduation and exams, Charlie Bow- 
ser will entrain for Amherst with a 
line that is far above the average. 
Veteran Johnny Milliken, former 
Soph star at the pivot post, is back; 
Milliken last year played in more 
games, and for a longer total time, 
than any other regular. Flanking the 
center position will probably be 
Charlie Bilodeau, second-string man 
of the previous year, and Ray Olsen, 
hardy veteran of former wars. 

A new set of ends had to be devel- 
oped by the Polar Bear guide. Two 
former reserves, Hugh Barton and 
Charlie Barbour, will hold down the 
wing positions; Barton showed flash 
last year against the Brown Bear, 
when he relieved Crimmins. 

Though it is impossible to foretell 
accurately the starting lineup, these 
men have been used consistently m 
practice with the first-strinjr. eleven. 
From Wtabash College comes Stan 
Gould, ineligible last year, but well 
versed in Bowser tactics, to make a 
powerful bid for a tackle berth. Big 
John Hay is pretty definitely slated 
for the other tackle post. Rangy Tom 
Kimball, out of action temporarily 
with an injured leg, will make a 
strong call for a show in the tackle 
position against the Aggits Satur- 

Reserves Show Promise 

Supplementing his four regular 
backs, Coach Bowser has developed a 
group of hard-hitting, fleet second- 
stringers, who should see action in 
the opener. Don Reid, converted 
Frosh end of last year, is working 
out well as half-back: Henry Richard- 
son drew comment against M.C.I, in 
the jayvee tilt; and Pete Lewia, for- 
mer Frosh star quarter, is ready for 

Backing up the White machine's 
regular front line of defense, is a 
brawny group of linesmen: Win 
Frost, last year reserve, Larsen, for- 
mer Freshman backfield ace, and 
D'Arcy, who won notice against 
M. C. I. last week. 

Despite the apparent lack of expe- 
rienced material, the trio of Bowser, 
Wells and Magee have whipped"~a-n

Aggies a bitter fight. Advance dope 
indicates that a possibly weakened 
Polar Bear squad will set against a

Bowdoin plates should be in the 
Alumni Office by October first. Plates 
ordered then will be delivered in time 
for Christmas. Samples of both 
colors of the plates may be seen at 
the Alumni Office. 

Nineteen thirty-five betook them- 
selves en masse last Thursday eve- 
ning to Memorial Hall, where they 
were thoroughly welcomed by every 
phase of Bowdoin college life. The 
newcomers, along with a scattered 
handful of upper-classmen, observed 
the festivities of AU-Bowdoin Night, 
under the auspices of the Christian 

Warren S. Palmer, president of the

No. 9 

At the start of a new college year it may be well for us to re- 
flect a bit upon our future conduct and to make a few prefatory 
remarks with that idea in mind. In the first place let us remind 
our readers, new and old, that the ORIENT is their paper. It is not 
a fraternity organ, nor the mouthpiece through which the College 
Office is wont to trumpet forth whatever remarks it has to im- 
press upon the student body, nor yet is it the plaything of a few- 
perverse and perverted undergraduates who have nothing better 
to do than throw verbal rocks at all and sundry about the campus, 
to the great discomfort of the latter and to the exclusion of all 
opinion but that of the former. The Orient is run by undergrad- 
uates, and primarily for undergraduates. It stands as an agency 
through which any member of the College may express his views 

— an agency whose communication column is never closed to any- 
one regardless of his race, creed, or particular grievance. It is 
through communications, pro and con, that we may best sound 
out campus opinion. In order, therefore, that the Orient may 
best serve its purpose as a free student paper, let us have your 
opinions freely, whether you agree with us or not. 

So much for the undergraduates as a body. The Orient, for 
its part, will continue to shape its policy in accordance with what 
it feels is best for the College in the long run. We have done so in 
the past, though perhaps in the opinion of some, misguidedly. But 
whatever the impression given may have been, the policy set forth 
has been the result of a sincere desire to help build up a better 
Bowdoin, and a Bowdoin wholly abreast of the times. Of course 
it is not given to any group of students to be infallible in the steps 
they take, or always far-sighted in the policies they set forth. But 
it does seem as though the opinions of a sizeable body of under- 
graduates, who at least try to do a bit of serious thinking on Col- 
lege matters, should be received with some degree of considera- 
tion. Therefore, to what we may set forth on this page in the 
next few months, we ask that our readers bring open minds, and 
further, that they try to form their own opinions without bias or 
prejudice, remembering that we are not trying to overthrow the 
existing order, nor are we overly impressed with our own ideas, 
but that we are trying with whatever ability we may have to find 
a solution to the problem at hand. If the members of the College 

— students, faculty, and alumni alike — will consider our opin- 
ions thus tolerantly and sincerely, our task will be simplified and 
not wholly meaningless. 

On the other hand, we feel safe in saying that many of the 
difliculties and misunderstandings of the past can be avoided in 
the future if only the sources of information which we need for 
any intelligent discussion of some important questions be opened 
to us, at least in a reasonable and honest measure. 

With these things in mind let us proceed to the new year with 
confidence and with hopes that the Orient, in its own way, can 
contribute something worth while to Bowdoin life. 

Activities Again 

Last spring we conducted in this column a brief survey of the 
activities^ real or imaginary, that one finds listed in the Bvgle. 
Far be it from us to go into all that again, but we do feel that per- 
haps a little reminding word to those happy ones thus listed on the 
scroll of Fame would not be too far oi ' of place. We have made 
our remarks. What are you goinf to do about it? Shall Bowdoin 
enter upon another year of stagnation in this respect? We hope 
not. It were better to kill outright some of our decadent organi- 
yations than to have their cadaverous remains continue to haunt 
the pages of the worthy Ruffle, to the hollowly resounding glory 
of their members. 

But why kill them? Here we have a new year, new enthusi- 
asms, and new undergraduates. Why not revive some of our dy- 
ing and dead organizations? There is still a place for them, or 
some of them at least — kill the rest utteriy — but if revival is to 
come this year things have got to get started at once, before other 
interests take their place entirely, and the year has slipped 
awav unused.

College Men versus Depression 

"About a century ago a British 
statesman made the criticism that no 
movement for the betterment of social 
conditions come" from the English 
universities. Conditions have changed 
since then, but the great demand to- 
day upon all college men is meeting 
responsibility. It is popular to blame 
the present depression upon the war, 
but with our present social and eco- 
nomic order we should undoubtedly be 
suffering severely even if there had 
been no war. The criticism of Sir 
Robert Peel still holds good. It is 
something of a paradox that the age 
which has invented and developed the 
automobile, the radio, and the air- 
plane, has not been able to devise 
means for preventing war and unem- 
ployment and the unequal distribu- 
tion of wealth. These problems chal- 
lenge everybody everywhere; they 
challenge particularly our colleges 
and our universities. 

Object of Liberal Education 

"What has a liberal education to do 
with all this? Well, its chief ob- 
ject is to develop the resourceful 
mind. It has many other objects: to 
train one for the proper use of leisure, 
to make one intellectually a citizen of 
the World, to develop the spiritual 
forces within. But above all it is to 
fit one to face the various changes 
and chances of life with equanimity. 
And -along with this training must 
go stamina to accept responsibility. 
It should be a cause of some pride to 
us as Bowdoin men that one of our 
graduates and trustees is at the pres-

i Frederick Hale, was brought to 
j Brunswick for interment near the 
I things he loved. 

The Brunswick Record said of the 
| young student: "Nothing was so char- 
I acteristic of John Snyder as his 
i modesty. He would have been the 
first to deprecate any attempt to 
praise him — At Bowdoin and later at 
Harvard he brought to his work an 
eager mind and a devotion to truth 
which gave a fresh zest and a new 
reality to his studies — Few teacher.-, 
had so fierce and so sincere a hatred 
of sham and pretense in any form — 
His rare qualities of genuine enthu- 
siasm and sound scholarship won in- 
stant recognition by students and col- 
leagues alike." 

A native of Concord, Mass., Mr. 
Snyder was graduated from Bowdoin 
College in 1927, after receiving Phi 
Beta Kanoa and Longfellow Schol- 
arship honors. He received his Mas- 
ter's degree at Harvard and then in- 
structed at the University of Wiscon 
sin and last year held a similar posi- 
tion at Amherst College. An individ- 
ual of keen enthusiasm, critical judg- 
ment, and clear vision toward a sound 
jroal, Mr. Snyder will always be re- 
membered sincerely and reverently by 
his manv friends.

showed a predominance of trumpet- 
ers. The newly formed band showea 
I exceptional promise in the playing of 
the college songs, and several stir-

At present, with the home schedule 

I still a thing of flthe future, the Polar 

i Bear Band will meet weekly to drill 

I under Professor Wass, with William 

Monroe as student leader. As soon 

as the home football games become 

more imminent, Professor Wass will 

call rehearsals twice weekly. 

Two of the three State games this 
year are at home, consequently the 
band will travel only to Orono, to play 
before the combined rooters of the 
University of Maine and Bowdoin, in 
the gala fray of the season.

Compulsory Attendance Only For 
Sophomores and Freshmen 

A new system of required athletics 
is being inaugurated this semester at 
Bowdoin. All sports have been classi- 
fied with a view toward providing the 
student with a well-rounded athletic 
training. . Every undergraduate will 
be required to demonstrate during his 
four years in college a working knowl- 
edge of some sport of definite carry- 
over value to him after graduation. 

Freshmen and Sophomores will 
henceforth report for athletics three 
days a week from October first until 
one week before the June final ex- 
aminations. One season of the three 
must be spent on either a supervised 
varsity sport or a class B sport, such 
as boxing, wrestling, class football, or 
interfraternity touch football. The 
Class of 1933, to conform to the new 
program, must attend three classes 
weekly from Thanksgiving until East- 
er of the present academic year. Those 
men whose physical condition does 
not permit of participation in vig- 
orous Class A or Class B sports arc- 
to be exempted by Doctor Johnson, 
the College physician. 

Sophomores Meet Today 

All athletic activities are to be of- 
fered to all classes, and Malcolm E. 
Morrell, Director of Athletics, is hope- 
ful for a large representation from 
thetwo upper classes. Freshmen turned 
out yesterday for their first regular 
attendance, and Sophomores are 
scheduled for a meeting in the gym- 
nasium this afternoon. It is planned 
to organize this fall either three class 
football teams or a single Junior Var- 
sity, depending upon the interest

Watching the Varsity work out At 
Pickard Field yesterday we were im- 
pressed by the brilliant broken field 
running of Captain Sit Ricker. The 
way that lad side-stepped the scrubs 
was a marvel! And Gatchell wasn't 
handing out any love-taps as he 
smashed the reserve's center for con- 
sistent gains. 

Coach Charlie Bowser seems to be a

pretty well . . . and brawny Swede

is unlikely that another 45-0 walk- 
away will result, but on paper the 
teams look fairly equal, with superi- 
ority in technique the only element to 
throw the balance either way. 
. Bowser Looks To Speed 

With a sweeping offense knit close- 
ly around Captain Ricker, who de- 
pends on his brilliant broken field 
twisting and phenomenal swiftnes3 
on the getaway. Bowser hopes to 
supplant his former >heavv charging 
quartet of Foster, Gatchell, Morrell 
and Brown. Ricker will also see 
most of the work in punting, though 
Gatchell has been undergoing some 
drill in that line. 

Signal-caller Gatchell and Morris 
Brown are looked to for that needed 
line smashing, as thev are the heav- 
iest men in a comparatively light 
backfield. The aerial attack is an 
enigma at present with Charlie 
Bowser keeping his passinjr more-or- 
less of a dark mystery. ■ 

Camp Has Aided Eleven 

Bowdoin went into a second year of 
pre-season training camp when the 
souad had early conditioning at Roly 
Cobb's camp at Denmark. Maine, on 
the shores of Moose Pond. On Sep- 
tember eighth forty members of the 
White force, alone with seven man- 
agers and the coachinjr staff of Bow- 
ser, Wells and Magee. and the col- 
lege physician. Dr. Johnson, arrived 
at the scene of action. 

On a somewhat uneven practice 
field the squad worked out on ele- 
mentary plays, and earlv drills. Dur- 
ing the forenoon sessions the men 
were introduced to a riirid series of 
calisthenics, dummy tacklinjr, dummy 
scrimmage, and blocking. With the 
exception of a few minor iriuries, the 
two score Dlayers returned for prac- 
tice on the college fields in eood 

Breakfast at trainine camp was 
.curved at vv^.n a. m.: from nine until 
eleven in the mornine conditioning 
nractice was held. The squad received 
a eood workout traversine to and

^•larters of a mile distant from the 
mess hall. Luncheon at twelve-fifteen

Bob Miller had both his freshman 
and varsity swimming squads going 
through their first practise sessions 
early this week. The Frosh came out 
on Tuesday and the varsity this af- 
ternoon. This first two or three weeks 
will consist mainly of conditioning 
work with workouts only three times 
a week until Thanksgiving. At that 
time when the squad will be aug- 
mented by many of those now en- 
gaged in fall athletics, the regular 
five days a week schedule will com- 
mence. At present fifteen freshmen 
have signified their intentions of 
joining the squad. This is an increase 
of two over last year's number. 

The varsity looks forward to a good 
season with only two of last year's 
team being lost by graduation ; namely, 
Bowman and Smith. From the ranks 
of the 1930 freshman squad, Miller 
will have Foster and Calkin. However, 
the chief need of the team, that is, 
sprinters, will still be lacking. Coach 
Miller will have to devote his atten- 
tion to developing a couple of speedy 
mermen in order to turn out a winning 
dual team.

Waging a bitter battle against in- 
experience, the Polar Bear jayvees 
succumbed to a driving Maine Central 
attack in the last few minutes of play, 
7-0, Saturday at Pickard Field. De- 
fensively powerful, yet offensively 
weak, the juniors made little of their 
ball-carrying opportunities. 

Thrice Bowdoin sustained the M. C. 
I. backs who battered at their line 
within the ten yard stripe, and it was 
only in the last period when the In- 
stitute eleven made their fourth at- 
tempt that the White slipped. Reed, 
bouncing left half of the Red and 
Black, plunged over the line of scrim- 
mage for the lone touchdown. Jordan 
drop-kicked the point. 

Richardson, playing fullback on the 
Junior Varsity, distinguished himself 
in his line bucking, making repeated 
smashes at M. C. I.'s middle for gains. 
The stocky Bowdoin man was im- 
peded by bewildered interference and 
a treacherous underfooting caused by 
the driving rain. Burdell, Colgate 
transfer, supported his teammate in 
line plunging. 

Defense Looks Promising 

Three times the Bears took the ball 
on downs, after M. C. I. failed to 
pierce the stone-wall defense offered, 
with sturdy D'Arcy, Torrey and Ma- 
deira discouraging the Red's repeated 
delayed bucks. M. C. I>'s line showed 
skittish on the offense, losing thirty- 
five yards on offside penalties. 

Halted under the Bowdoin goal- 
posts, Maine surrendered the pigskin, 
and the Polar Bears started a march 
down the field which collapsed only 
when three line plays netted precise- 
ly nothing. Adams of M. C. I. re- 
ceiving the punt was downed in his 

Neither team tried the ends for 
long runs, as the ground was too 
slippery for safe progress; Richard- 
son-Burdell showed talent as a lateral 
passing team, hampered only by soggy 

Line Holds Firmly 

After Burdell butter-fingered the 
wet ball on a punt, M. C. I. advanced 
rapidly from the Bears' thirty-five 
yard marker, aided by two long pen- 
alties for holding. Fumbling cost the 
Redmen precious yardage, and after 
two center plays failed to pierce the 
battling Jayvees, Bowdoin receivec 
the ball on downs, eight yards from 
their own zero stripe. 

A long pass late in the fourth quar- 
ter, Laughton to Reed put M. C. I. 
within striking distance of the home 
team goal. Reed, in one of the few 
long runs of the fray, skirted along 
right end and bore into the rain, 
stopped at the last minute by Bow- 
doin's frantic secondary defense. 

Two substitutions in the White line 
at the last minute after the original 
line had held gamely on the four y?rd 
line, failed to stop the final spurt by 
M. C. I. Halfback Reed, set for a 
drive through right tackle, suddenly 
shifted tactics, and did a neat header 
over the mix-up on the scrimmage 
line for the touchdown. Jordan drop- 
kicked the extra point.

With a large corps of enthusiastic 
horsemen appearing each day, even 
before the call for riders has been 
posted, and with several men outside 
of the collejre cooperating, the pros- 
pects for polo in the cominjr season 
seem to be very encouraging. 

For the past week men have been 
practicing independently, but. as a 
result of the meeting held Monday 
night for all those interested, more 
definite plans have been made. The 
hope that polo could be made a minor 
sport at Bowdoin was expressed. It 
was also learned that a srrouQ of men 
from Portland were expectiner to ship 
horses here and to play a series of 
games with the Bowdoin Riding Club. 
These men, two of whom are Bow- 
doin graduates, take a great interest 
in polo, and promise to jrive the boys 
strong opposition. They are Mr. Wad- 
leigh Drummond, Dr. Reginald Lom- 
bard, Mr. Kemp, and Mr. Charles 
Sims, all of Portland. The first game 
is to be played this Sunday on the 
field behind the Psi U House.

Enlarged Orient New Run 
On New Duplex Press 

The acquisition of a new Duplex 
Printing Press by the Brunswick Rec- 
ord is the main reason for the in- 
creased size of the Bowdoin Orient. 
From now on the Orient will bo 
printed on the Duplex which is ca- 
pable of running off 1600 Orients 
(equivalent to about 2'H) pounds of 
paper) in one half -hour. This time i.s 
just three hours faster than printing 
on the old Cylinder press. 

The new machine is equipped with a 
folding apparatus which goes into 
operation as soon as the sheet rolls 
off the printing forms. 

The Quill, Bowdoin's literary maga- 
i sine has behind it this fall a new or- 
ganization and plans to bring th- 
magazine closer to both the reader 
end contiibutor in its demand for un 
dergraduatc material. Last Thursday 
night there were meetings of two dif- 
ferent boards each having as its aim a 
Quill worthy of the wealth of tradi- 
tion behind it. 

The first, the business board, is 
handicapped by the loss of Business 
Manager Richard M. Lamport who 
will not be able to serve until later 
in the year. Louis C. Stearns, 3rd, 
"33, will act as Circulation and Ex- 
change Manager. Carl F. A. Weber 
•34, is the Advertising Manager. The 
candidates for this end of the maga- 
zine are to lie divided into four groups 
due to the wide interest in this de- 
partment. Each group will cover cer- 
tain cities and towns around Bruns- 

Contributors Organize 
The most radical change is an or- 
ganization called the Contributors' 
Club, made up of a number of the 
students who are interested in mak- 
ing the magazine an undergraduate 
publication. Membership is entirely 
voluntary and is not limited; any 
member of the undergraduate body 
has ah opportunity to join. Five or 
six members of the club will be chosen 
each issue to edit the Quill and a dif- 
ferent group will be chosen for each 
issue. The club will meet twice a 
month for the purpose of making 
, ipiMn. ftuutg- over materiel, and dis- 
cussing any problems which may 
have appeared. Once a month there 
will be a general meeting. A part 
of the monthly program will be to 
have a competent outsider or a mem- 
ber of the faculty discuss with the 
group some subject of a literal y na- 
ture. It is the purpose of this reor- 
ganizing of the Quill to make it as 
nearly an undergraduate work as pos- 
sible. It is the belief of the editors 
now that there is enough ability in 
the college to do this and to do it 
well. They believe that there is no 
reason why the Quill should not be as. 
good a college literary magazine as 
any published by colleges of our 
standing. Besides the undergraduate 
contribution however, there will be at 
different times during the year in- 
teresting articles- from the faculty 
or the alumni body. 

Student Interest Desired 
The aim of the organization is to 
instill in the student body the real- 
ization that the Quill is their puper. 
The reorganization has been effected 
so that any member may contribute 
poetry, articles, essays, orstories. The 
monthly meetings 6T the Contributors' 
Club arc open to all who wish to at-

At the first meeting of the Intel- 
fraternity Athletic Council on Thurs- 
day evening, John W. Hay '32, wan 
elected president of the organization. 
Other officers chosen were John H. 
Milliken *33, vice president and Dclmu 
L. Galbraith '32 secretary-tieasuier. 
Rules for the inter-fraternity touch 
football season were also revised at 
the meeting. 

All of the changes in the touch 
football rules were introduced to in- 
crease the interest of the game and to 
make scoring somewhat easier. Thv 
teams will now consist of eight, in- 
stead of eleven, men each. The point 
after touchdown has been added with 
the same rules as govern it in regu- 
lation football with the exception that 
there is to be no kick for the point 
The distance to be gained for a first 
down is to be ten yards instead of 
the customary twenty. Finally, a 
tackle is now considered to be a two 
handed touch on any part of the bod}, 
rather than a one hand touch' below 
the belt. 

Committees Appointed 

The rules committee appointed by 
the council is as follows: Chairman. 
H. V. Durand "32; W. S. Phelps '33; 
W. W. Dunbar '32. The schedule 
committee ia: G. W. Kirkpatriek '32: 
W. S. Phelps ; ^3; aflrrfT. K 'TJTeavesT 
The Athletic Council also went on 
record as being in favor of excusing 
the freshman football men from 
fighting at Proc Night. 

The membeis of the Athletic Coun- 
cil this year are: C. P. Emerson '32; 
J. H. Milliken "33; D. L. Galbraith '32;

Three senior committeemen are the

the National Student Federation of 
America which was organized here 
last Spring. Election of lepresenta-

Federation's Aim 

Adopting as its purpose the fos- 
teiing of understanding among stu- 
dents of the world, and a liberal dis- 
cussion of world affairs by under- 
graduates, the Federation has re 
ceived the hearty endorsement of Her- 
bert Hoover, Dr. Ray Lvman Wilbur, 
Julius Klein, and Wesley C. Mitchell 
of Columbia University. 

Said Dr. Wilbur at *he time of a 
Federation Congress: "It seemed to 
me that it would' be a fine develop- 
ment in out national life if repre 
sentatives of the student groups 
carne together to discuss some of the 
questions that were uppermost in our 

"In universities and colleges tradi- 
tions . . . grow up and are main- 
tain*^ without any real thought as 
to their present day usefulness. A 
frank and searching survey of them 
by undergraduates is sure to have a 
wholesome effect." Continued the 
former president of Stanford Univer 
sity, now Cabinet member and Sec- 
retary of the Interior: 

"At the same time there is a pos,- 
sibility of interesting American stu- 
dents in some of the world's prob- 
lems and of diminishing that pro- 
vincialism which is at the same time 
both the glory and the curse of the 
American educational institution."

J.V.'s Tackle Dummer 

While the varsity is away tackling 
the Williams team Satuiday, the 
Junior Varsity will play host to Gov- 
ernor Dummer Academy of South 
Byfield, Mass., in a game to be playeu 
at Pickard Field. Very few of those 
who took part in the M. C. I. game 
are expected to be on the eleven 
which faces the Private School boys; 
for the Williamstown trip will claim 
a large majority of them. 

Governor Dummer is not expected 
to furnish quite as much opposition as 
did M. C. I. but this is just a haz- 
arded guess as the tiue strength is 
unknown. The lineup will not be 
known until after this week of prac- 
tise has made Coach Bowser certain 
of the exact men, that he wants for 
his trip. About the only sore starter 
is the tow-headed Charley Burdell, 
ineligible for the varsity because of 
the transfer ruling, who has been 
showing a heady game at quarter. 



The first- of a series of lectures by 
prominent authorities in various flelas 
will be held in the Moulton Union on 
October 16, when Mr. Robert Hillyei 
will discuss "The Rhythm of English 
Verse", with readings from both an- 
cient and modem poetry. Mr. Hillyer, 
who supplemented his education re- 
ceived at Harvard with study in many 
foreign countries, has written a large 
number of poems and prose works. 
Considering the large number of ex- 
cellent volumes which have come from 
his pen, this lecture should be of 
great interest to the undergraduateo 
of the college.

Filling Up the Gaps 

This summing up covers every sig- 
nificant field of human endeavoi. 
When they are all analysed they are 
found to be an eternal stiugghi to 
close up gaps. Statesmanship at us 
best is but a closing up o r gaps. 
Science is an effort to close up gap 
in human knowledge. The arts an 
an attempt to close up gaps in t!ic 
coherence of life. And as in the In-

If we should project ourselves back 
and ask those who sat here years ago 
what religion was they would not de- 
fine it in terms of closing up gaps. 
They would say something very muctt 
different. They would likely say tha' 
religion is a belief, a belief that the 
world was made in six days, that ;-. 
man once walked on water over the 
surface of a lake, that it was pos- 
sible to feed a multitude with a few 
fishes and two loaves of bread. O. 
perhaps they would say that it is r.

Two Seniors, Onc Junior aid Eleven 
Freshmen Admitted 

Last night fourteen novitiates were 
elected to the mysteries of the Bow- 
doin Classical Club at its annual in- 
itiation conducted by President Mor- 
till McArthur Tozier '32. Two sen- 
iors, a junior, and eleven sophomoies 
were honored with full membership to 
the organization. 

With the faculty members of the 
Classical Department, Dean Paul 
Nixon, Professor Thomas Means, and 
Associate Professor Barnfield Smith, 
present to aid in the festivities, the 
neophytes were given the cus- 
tomary ii'tual, a basic portion 
of which consisted in the tecitation oi 
Ode XXII, Hook 1 in Horace, lho 
ceremony wa;; conducted at the Psi 
Upsilon house. 

The new members of the Classica' 
Club aie: John A. Kicker '32, Sid- 
ney E. McKown *32, William L. Bryan 
33, John W. Lord '34, Blake TewKS- 
bury '34, Carl ft A. Weber '34, C. E. 
Dewing '34, Harold R. Black '34. 

Also Alexander P. Clark '34, Gar- 
net K. Hackwell '34, K. Lloyd HacK- 
well '34, Alfred S. Hayes 34, Neal 
P. Skilnngs '34, H. Nelson libbetu 

Qualifications for membership in ths 
Classical Club are based on tne can- 
didate's knowledge of either Latin or 
Gieek. To be eligible he must have 
had a preliminary year of a classical 
course, and at least be starting a sec- 
ond consecutive year. Also, his stand- 
ing must be a B or better. 

If the Class Prophet of 1902 has 
watched the career of onc of the vic- 
tims of his burlesques he has noticed 
that time has added humor to th<? 
prophecy filed away among the old 
issues of the Bowdoin Orient. In the 
commencement number of 1902 there 
appears this fiom a description of a 
circus to which the writer takes the 
reader. "In the crowd I noticed Bill 
Watson and 'Gaffer' Gibson, each sur- 
rounded by sturdy youngsters en- 
treating papa to look a* the funny 
clown — ." In the Time magazine re- 
cently there appeared this from the 
section devoted to business and 
finance. "The conversions ended 
with promises of a million dollarr. 
from each bank and the choice of Mi. 
Gibson as the man to handle th»> 
money." And this, "When »he bankers 
gathered in Manhattan last month to 
choose a chairman for *hc New York 
Unemployment Relief Committee un- 
der National Chairman Walter Sher- 
man Gifford, they picked Bankei 
Gibson. ... He was easily Walt 
Street's man of the week." 

The Boy From Maine 

In the first paragraph of <hc a:- 
ticle the Time says, "Thirty year/. 
»go Harvey Dow Gibson came out of 
Maine, like Rudy Vallce, wi»h an or- 
chestra of college boys behind him. 
Unlike Rudv Vallce he did not become 
a nation-famed crooner, but last week 
he waved a baton for a band com- 
posed of all the great New York 
banking houses." 

Also unlike Rudv Vallec, he wen* to 
Bowdoin College. The first time his 
name appeared in the college weekly 
was among the freshmen listed. 
"Gibson, Harvey Dow. N. Conway. 21 
A.H." The next was in the lineup of

caused the White's tumble, while the 
State machine was clicking rejrularly 
for long gains by means of passing 
and wide runs. 

Judged on line plays alone, Bow- 
doin stood out as super or to the vic- 
tors, yet the Bears seemed totally un- 
able to cope with the State powerful, 
.sweeping drives. Long passes were 
another Bowdoin Waterloo, as yard- 
age was reeled off when the home 
team receiver easily eluded diving 

Captain Jit Ricker was the bright 
star in the White's firmament, doing 
consistent ground gaining with off- 
tackle slants, and reverse plays; his 
interference was ragged on end runs, 
which should have been the most ef- 
fective ground gainers. Fullback 
Richardson also helped bear the 
hrunt of the Bear's unsuccessful 
drive, with mighty slashes against 
guard and center.

far back for the kick-off early in the 
contest, gathered in the spheroid, and 
headed straight for the left end side-

Several times Bowdoin stared help-

State's iron man Holmberg to fleet 
Bush, soph backfield star, carried true 
for gains of twenty and thirty yards. 
The Polar Bear's lone completed 
aerial attempt came after a long toll 
of intercepted passes and grounded 
balls marked the trail to success. 
Ricker and Gatehell couldn't seem u>

wildly over the line of scrimmage. 

On the White's line, which tight- 
ened to stone wall rigidity in the last 
quarter, stocky guardsman Bilodeau 
proved a very real obstacle to the 
Statemen's attempt at piercing the 
Polar Bear's heart; Johnny Milliken 
stopped plays through center, and 
was foremost in stopping extra-point 
tries; Big John Hay at tackle, let his 
weight be felt, as the Bay State lads 
failed to gain much through him.

In order to determine the ability or

ers, plans are under way for an elim- 
ination tournament. This even* will 
be open only to freshmen who a:o 
out for the snort. It was annoanced 
that there would be no prearranged 
tournament among the sophomores 
and other upper-classmen. There are 
now so many freshman tennis aspir- 
ants t,hat it is strongly advised thac 
some of them join other groups for 
required athletic work. 


Trackmen Train Seriously for Posi- 
tions on Squad; Usher Elected 
Road Captain 

Jack Magee's distance runners are 
taking their training more seriously 
than ever this year since the an- 
nouncement that the college is to be 
represented by a road team. Already 
a tentative date wi f h Tuf»s has been 
set for November 14th. If It is pos- 
sible, the race will be run during lho 
morning or early afternoon, allowing 
the trackmen to attend the Bowdoin- 
Tufts game at the Med ford oval. 
Usher Captain 

W. Lawrence Usher '32, was elected 
last Thursday to captain the road 
team. Usher, George Sewall, Steve 
Lavender and Dave Morris, four of 
the first five to finish last year's In- 
terfraternity Road Race, are the 
nucleus on which Jack Magec will 
build his team. Football has claimed 
one or two potential road men, but 
the next few weeks of training will 
piovide sufficient trial for the selec- 
tion of a complete team.

Football and Morale 

The generally spineless attitude with which last Saturday's 
defeat seems to have been received about the campus is to be de- 
plored most decidedly. For various reasons Bowdoin took a beat- 
ing. The team gives no alibis ; we offer none. The facts stand, yet 
the team goes on in the old groove of training, hopeful, more deter- 
mined, and not entirely dismayed by a defeat in the first game. 
The rest of us sit back with a resigned air as though the season 
were finished, the final tally against us registered, and the battle 
utterly lost. 

It would seem that the least we could do would be to keep up 
our own confidence. After all, a single game, lost partly at least 
because of inexperience and adverse weather conditions, is slight 
grounds for a total collapse of morale. There has been and most 
apparently still is a tremendous lack of spirit and of willingness 
to see a thing through on the part of the Bowdoin student body. 
We have no fault to find with the team or the coaches. They give 
their best and we count on them to do so. Bowdoin teams have \ 
come back before — witness last year's State series. They can do 
so again. But why let them do all the work? 

The morale of a football team, or of any other student under- 
taking, depends greatly for support on undergraduate opinion as 
it is manifested about the campus. This opinion seems to be of a 
noticeably dull, if not of an entirely negative, hue at Bowdoin, not 
only as regards the football team, but in many other connections. 
Why can't we make an exception to the rule, at least in this one 
case? The trial will be neither long nor particularly arduous. 
The season is short, and for that little time one sees no great 
reason why Bowdoin should not shake herself out of the rut and 
show a little enthusiasm, be the circumstances what they may. 
The results might prove interesting. 

Keep in Touch 

The student in an American 
college is til too prone to get out 
of touch with reality — with af- 
fairs in the world about him. He 
drifts along in his easy-going 
way with little regard for what 
goes on outside or for the sig- 
nificance thereof. Possibly, in 
view of present conditions, this 
is more to be lamented than ever 
before, for at the present time 
movements of all sorts are on 
foot that undoubtedly will have 
far-reaching repercussions in 
this sorry world. The sooner 
we wake up to the facts and 
realize the critical position the 
world is in today, the better for 
us and for it. We can do very 
little singly, but it is in the col- 
lege group that the impetus for 
change and betterment can have 
its most helpful start 

In June some of us will be 
leaving this sanctuary of de- 
tachment and entering a differ- 
ent realm — a realm where strife 
and uncertainty reign supreme. 
Would it not be better for us 
were we to have some grasp of 
affairs? Could we not perhaps 
prove ourselves more useful citi- 
zens? With conditions as they 
are the world demands and must 
receive intelligent minds en- 
dowed with a thorough under- 
standing of its conditions if it is 
to be rescued from chaos. 

Even as we drift pleasantly 
along-, serenely absorbed in our 
own affairs, the situation grows 
more complex. Instance upon 
instance piles up to increase the 
burden of uncertainty. Unem- 
ployment and misery stretch 
their icy fingers everywhere; 
wages are cut; production con- 
tinues to scrape along the bot- 
tom; the securities market 
teeters along like a drunken 
tight-rope walker. At home, 
oil production is curbed by 
martial law; Harlan County, 
Kentucky, is torn by virtual 
civil war; men die in Boston 
labor struggles. Abroad, Bri- 
tain and three other countries 

suspend gold payments; Russia 
continues on her uncertain 
cojnpm of rejuvenated econom- 
ies; Japan seiges the capital of 
Manchuria: the British Atlantic 
fleet mutinies ~ so on endlessly. 
Veritably the world is in a 
sad state and unless something 
is done about it a heavy fate 
awaits us. And it is we of the 
colleges today who must face a 
great measure of the task. We 
never take exams without grind- 
ing, or play football without 
training. Why should we enter 
upon this business empty-hand- 
ed and unprepared? 

Dwight W. Morrow 
The death of Dwight W. Mor- 
row, to whom the College grant- 
ed an honorary degree last June, 
leaves vacant at a most critical 
moment an important place in 
the field of American states- 
manship. Bowdoin should deem 
herself fortunate indeed in num- 
bering upon her rolls this great 
man, who in his later years gave 
so much of himself to the public 
weal. Though many may have 
differed from him in the mere 
matter of politics, surely in most 
circles we would find him recog- 
nized as an outstanding citizen, 
highly distinguished for his ser- 
vice to the public. For Dwight 
W. Morrow possessed practical 
ability coupled with high ideal- 
ism in a degree seldom found in 
a man of public life. 

Capitalist he was, and multi- 
millionaire, yet he possessed a 
measure of sympathy and un- 
derstanding for the hopes and 
needs of common men all too 

seldom found in others of his 
economic position. Statesman 
he eame to be, yet there seems to 
have been none of the petty sel- 
fishness or blind partisanship 
and prejudice so all-too-fre» 
quently found among those who 
guide American affairs. 

Certainly at "his passing 
America may well lament the 
loss of one of her ablest and 
most devoted statesmen, a man 
who might, had his destiny so 
willed it, have done much to help 
lead her out of her present 
chaotic plight. The world today 
stands in dire need of more men 
of his calibre, and we should be 
proud in acknowledging him a 
son of Bowdoin, and doubly sor- 
rowful at his loss.

bully old slogan hits 
me just right— 

A nerve system 
for energetic skyscrapers 

Long before the huge bulk of a new sky- 
scraper looms up, Bell System men have 
planned its nerve system — the maze of tele- 
phone cables and wires so vital to its busi- 
ness activities. 

From the inception of a building design, 
telephone engineers work hand in hand with 
the architects. They determine the telephone 

needs of thousands of future tenants. Then 
they plan cable shafts rising from cellar to 
roof and the grid of under-floor ducts that 
will put telephones within easy reach of 
every occupant 

There's a real thrill in working out these 
plans, for without telephones the immense 
structures of today would hardly be practicable.

interesting- to state that this waa the 
■tart of a highly successful college 
career aa an athlete, but the New 
York banker, who recently has taken 
over seven broken banks to restoie 
the confidence of the depositors, did 
not follow the rugged path to glory 
and hondsalesmanship. 

In college he was most prominent, 
aa far aa extra-curricular activities 
go, along the line ot managing the 
musical clubs. If he excelled in 
scholastic lines, hasty perusal of the

He was a member of the Theta Delta

certain Bowdoin students at a dance 
in Auburn, knowledge of his four 
years here gleaned from the Orient 
of the time is finished. But any 
thorough acquaintanceship with the 
banking and finances of the country's 
largest city must include a knowledge

"Quite a Broom" 

He started in his financial career 
by sweeping out the offices of the 
American Express Company in Bos- 
ton. As the Time put it, "He turned 
out to be quite a broom." In a few 
years he had swept himself into place 
as financial manager of the company's 
business in Canada. He became pare 
owner and vice president of Ray- 
mond and Whitcomb Co., travel 
agents, and assistant to President 
Seward Prosser in Liberty National 
Bank. At 34 he was president of 
Liberty National. In the War he 
served under Morgan's partner Henry 
Pomeroy Davison as general manager 
of the American Red Cross in 1917 
and Red Cross Commissioner for 
Prance in 1918 and for Europe in 
1919. When Liberty National con- 
solidated in 1921 with New York

went offside; ten yards for a touch- 1 
down, and seven for a first down, car- 
ried the ball twice through the heart 
of the Bay State defense for the need- ; 
ed seven. After Ricker was stopped j 
dead at right tackle, the charging 
fullback, Richardson, drove through a 
crevice at left, and wriggled his way 
across the zero stripe. Ricker missed 
the placement. 

On Bowdoin's kickoff, Bush made 
his sensational ninety-two yard sprint , 
for the easiest touchdown of the \ 
game. Johnny Milliken blocked 
Foskett's try-fpr-point. 

Bowdoin Defense Tightens 

Though Bowdoin was fighting bit- 
terly to regain the loss after that dis- i 
astrous kick-off, the Statemen, aided 
by a favoring fifteen yard penalty for | 
holding, forced Captain Ricker to ; 
punt from his own seventeen yard 
line; the ball carried low and out in 
the center of the gridiron. 

From this point the ball became the 
center of a merry see-saw: Bush went 
through a mass of tacklers. convoyedt; 
by splendid interference around left 
end, for fifteen yards and first down, j 
From the Bear's thirty-one yard lime- ; 
stripe. Bush attempted an outside j 
run. but was grounded before he ' 
could reach the boundary, losing a I 
yard. A fumble, and an incompleted 
pass forced Welch to punt; Ricker! 
watched the ball bound over his goal- 

A first down on Bakanowsky's left, 
tackle slant carried the pi&skin to the 
thirty-three yard line, from whence it 
was pushed forward a scant five 
yards before Ricker punted to Bush, 
who carried the balf back to his forty- j 
one yard line. \ 

Bear Starts Second Even 

Frigard started the ball moving in 
the second stanza by tearine off ten 
yards around the White's left end for 

a first down. Holmberg pushed back 
the center of the line for four more 
yards but an attempt to skirt the 
right end by the same man went for 
naught. Hicks was detected holding 
on this plav and the State team was 
penalized fifteen yards. With the ball 
on his own forty yard line Welch 
booted the pigskin to Ricker on 
Bowdoin's twenty from whence the 
Polar Bear captain carried to the 
thirty where he was smeared by three 
or four of the State team. 

On an attempted end run Jit lost 
three yards; the reverse to the right 
failed to gain. Two or three of the 
State linemen seeped through the 
Polar Bear line on the next play to 
bring down Richardson for a five yard 
setback. Ricker nunted from his own 
twenty-two to Bush on the latter's 
forty yard stripe. 

Hereupon the slippery little half- 
back tore past would be Bowdoin 
tacklers to within thirtv-one yards of 
the White's goal line. The same run- 
ner snaked around Bowdoin's right 
flank for three more. Again on a fake 
reverse he eeletl through right guard 
for still another two. Thurm Larson, 
now playine end in place of Charlie 
Barbour, downed Holmberg in his 
tracks as the latter attempted to 
circle his end. As a last resort, 
Welch tossed a long forward which 
Don Reid smacked down right on the 
goal line. 

White Weakens Twice 

The ball reverted to the White on 
downs but on three rushes the latter I 
fell just short of a first down so Cap- j 
tain Ricker lifted the ball far downj 
the field to Bush on the thirty-six. j 
The State sophomore managed to j 
carry back to midfield before being 
downed. A pass from Welch to | 
Smith settled neatly in the latter's; 
arms; not until the ten yard stripe j 
was he downed. Frigard scored on 
the following play with a dash 
through left tackle. Foskett missed ' 
the placement. 

Ricker gathered in the kick-off on! 

his ten yard tape, and ran diagonally 
across the field to be forced off with 
only four yards runback. After a 
fumble, Bowdoin punted to Bush who 
succeeded in evading the many 
tacklers in his path until he was 
smeared on the White's thirty-four 
yard line. After three plays had 
failed to gain, Welch unloosed an- 
other one of his clever passes which 
found the Bowdoin secondary nap- 
ping. BUsh on .the receiving end 
crossed the line unhampered. The 
same little lad place-kicked the extra 

Another kick-off to Bowdoin was 
run back by Morris Brown from the 
ten to the thirty. Three plays failed 
to gain sufficiently, so Jit punted to 
Hicks. The latter returned to midfield 
as the half came to a close. 

Teams Battle for No Score 

Though strengthened after the 
half, Bowdoin got off to a poor start 
when Gatchell butter-fingered Fos- 
kett's kick-off. The Polar Bears 
started from their own twenty-nine 
yard tape as Jit Ricker found an open- 
ing at center to drive through for a 
couple of yards. Two plays netted 
four yards, but a fumble cost the 
White the ball oh downs. 

Apparently fumbling was the order 
of the day, for after Holmberg and 
Frirrard lanced Bowdoin's midsection 
for almost a first down, a fumble on 
the visitor's twenty-four yard ribbon 
caused a trade-in of the ball. Briggs, 
in for Bakanowsky, darted through 
an opening at left tackle for almost 
five yards; but Ricker was forced to 
punt after his own attempt at State's 
left guard failed. Bush side-stepped 
his way fifteen yards to his own 
forty-five yard line. 

A trio of line smashes by Bush and 
Frigard resulted in a lone five yard 
gain, so Welch sped the pigskin on a 
punt down to Ricker, who attempted 
a cut-back to elude tacklers, but in- 
stead ran into a wall, losing three 
yards. From the twentv-yard line, the 
Polar Bear started on a steam-roller 
march down the field, reeling off three 
first downs before losing the ball af- 
ter a forced punt. 

Ricker made the first telling gain 
when he almost got free after driving 
through a huge gap at left tackle for 
thirteen yards. On a fake reverse, 
Richardson scattered the State line 
bodily for three yards; Jit Ricker 
filled out the needed ten with two 
darts at left tackle. 

See-Saw Play in Last of Period 

The Ricker - Richardson company 
bore the brunt of the attack which 
drove the spheroid fiown to State's 
forty-five yard tape on two tackle cut- 
backs. Then attempting to convert 
the long drive into a score, the Bear 
continued to hammer the Bay Stat- 
ers' forward wall. After' two plays 
Ricker was causrht behind the line for 
a three yard setback, causing a forced 
punt which carried over the State goal

First League Games on Schedule 

Were Played Today; Series to 

End on November 3 

At a recent meeting of the lnter- 
fraternity Athletic Council, plans for 
the coming touch football season were 
formulated and schedules arranged 
Slight changes were made in the 
rules, though in general they are sim- 
ilar to those of last season. Follow- 
ing are the rules and schedules 
adopted at the meeting: 
Rules For 
Interfraternity Touch Football 

Sweeping end plays at left and 
right by Holmberg and the snaky 
Bush drew a first down, and set the 
pigskin securely on their own thirty- 
two yard line. But three successive 
plays gave merely losses for the 
Statemen, as Holmberg stumbled try- 
ing to skirt the end, an offside lost 
another five yards, and a drive at the 
White's center caused tfie doughty 
Mr. Bush to be burled back two yards! 
as the third quarter horn sounded. 

Bush Tallies Again 

Ricker pulled down a punt on his | 
own forty-five but was stopped in i 
his tracks by State men. On the first ] 
play Jit attempted a pass to Barton i 
which Sylvester stepped into on the 
run. and was finally ran off side on his 
own forty-seven. On an end run 
Gatchell clambered into the backfield 
to tackle Sylvester six yards back of j 
the scrimmage line. But the re- 1 
doubtable Bush started around Bow- ; 
doin's left wing and found it wanting 
to such an extent that the last white j 
stripe was passed over without much 
opposition. The same man place- 
kicked the twenty-sixth counter. 

Richardson returned Foskett's kick 
ten vards from the twenty-five yard 
line where he received it. The Bow- 
doin rooters' hopes were raised when j 
Bowdoin started a sudden surge led 
by Captain Ricker. Jit found an open- 
ing at right tackle for twelve yards 
and a first down. Less successful on 
r. second attempt at the same place, j 
he made a scant yard. However, j 
Gatchell galloped through a hole for 
five yards. 

Bowdoin now completed her only 
pass of the game: Gatch tossed to 

Lack of space is a considerable im 
pediment to the possibility of first 
rate polo at Bowdoin. The field now 
used by the Riding Club is of ample 
length but falls short of the official 
width by almost 120 yards. The ideal 
location would be one of the grassy 
stretches of Pickard Field, where a 
polo field was contemplated in the 
original plans. 

One feature of polo which in gen- 
eral sets it apart from other sports is 
the cost, which has earned for it the 
title "Sport of Kings". But this pro- 
hibitive aspect has been removed un- 
der the system used here to the ex- 
tent that a student of nominal means 
may play regularly. 

A youngster of grammar school 
age played for the Portland team 
during the last chukker of Sunday's 
match, and made a very commendable 
showing. Incidentally, he intends to 
enter Bowdoin in the distant future.

Ricker, who pulled it out of the air on 
the thirty-two. He fumbled upon be- 
ing tackled but as the ball rolled off- 
side, it remained in the Polajr Bears' 
possession. Gatchell, Richardson and 
Ricker, on successive thrusts at the 
State line, made another first down on 
the twentv-one. 

Substitute Runs Eighty Yards 

Ricker picked up two more, but a 
fflmble by Bakanowsky lost four. A 
slant off right tackle by the Bowdoin 
captain netted seven yards, but the 
ball reverted to the home team after 
a pass intended for Larson was 
grounded. Two plays failed to gain 
for State so Welch punted to Ricker 
at midfield from where the diminutive 
Polar Bear could onlv get back five 
yards before the fleet State ends were 
on him. 

On the first play a forward pass 
wa s attempted, but an alert State 
substitute fullback. Wood, was on the 
job. and he gathered it in, evaded one 
or two tacklers, then scampered down 
a clear field of eighty yards for 
State's final touchdown. 

Bowdoin again received but made 
scant gain. A fifteen yard penalty 
aided them though after fourvdowns, 
the pigskin reverted to State. On 
three successive plays. Hicks. Sylves- 
ter and Wood pushed the ball for- 
ward for a first down. Two plays by 
Wood did little damage and the game 
came to a close with the ball in Bow- 
doin's possession on their own six 
yard line after a punt.

31), 1931, has just come from the 
press and is now being mailed to the 
Alumni. The report shows an in- 
crease of $853,391.92 in the endow- 
ment of the College, bringing the 
total endowment to $6,307,133.28. 

With the exception of approximate- 
ly $10,000 leceived from the sale of 
securities and the addition of inter- 
est to principal, this increase has 
come through gifts and legacies re- 
ceived by the College. During the 
past ten years the endowment has 
grown from approximately $2,800,000, 
an increase for the period of more 
than 125 per cent. Largest among 
the gifts made to the College during 
the year is the Cyrus H. K. Curtis 
Fund for Faculty Salaries, listed on 
the books as $694,375. Other large 
items include a bequest of nearly 
$60,000 from the estate of George F. 
Manson, a bequest of more than $40,- 
000 from the estate of Charles C. 
Springer, "74, together with some- 
thing more than $55,000 from the 
estate of Henry B. Cleaves, '97, for 
the Nathan Cleaves Fund, more than 
$60,000 to the scholarship funds of 
the College, $46,600 from the estate 
of Lucien Howe, '70, $2,000 from the 
class of 1881 and $2,000 from the 
daughters of the late Professor Leslie 
A. Lee. These scholarship funds now 
amount to about $450,000, and awards 
from them amounting to more than 
$27,600 were made last year to needy 
stadents of satisfactory ' scholastic 
rank) $2,000 man was distributed in 
the form of prises, while nearly $7,- 
500 was paid to student assistants for 
work done during the college year. 
This figure represents approximately 
one fourth of the amount received 
from tuition, which is in its turn about 
one fourth of the total budget for the 
year. This budget figure, represent- 
ing an expenditure of more than 
$586,000, is nearly three times the 
comparative figure for ten years ago 
Investment Yield Off 

The report shows the income yield 
from college investments to be 5.3 per 
cent, a falling off of .1 per cent as 
compared with last year and the year 

The Alumni Endowment Fund has 
been increased by $3800 through gifts 
from the alumni and by $41,000 
through investment. This Fund now 
totals $800,987.31. Alumni contribu- 
tions for current expenses during the 
year totaled $9352.81, a figure nearly 
$1000 greater than that of the pre- 
vious year and representing contribu-

Twelve Pictures Represent Four Pe- 
riods of Artists Painting 

Winslow Homer, most typically 
American and most famous of his 
school of painters, is represented by 
twelve pictures in the current loan 
exhibit in the Bowdoin Gallery of the 
Art Building. 

These oils and water colors divide 
themselves into four periods of paint- 
ing: his early Houghton Farm pe- 
riod, his more famous Civil War pe- 
riod, one from his exhibition of 1892. 
"In the Adirondack Mountains", and 
two from his later Gloucester group. 
"The Army Teamsters" of the Civil 
War paintings was his first prize pic- 

Homer was born in Boston, in 183fi, 
and died in 1»10. He was largely 
self-taught, although he ^studied 
both in New York and Paris. Hi 
illustrations for Harper and Brothers 
first brought him fame. All exten 
sive collections in America contain 
some of Homer's paintings. 

The excellence of his draughtsman 
ship and composition, and his bold, 
masculine execution is best repre 
sented in his aquarelles, especially in 
those of «he Adirondack group. This 
is largely "omposed of landscapes 
with figures. The Houghton Farm 
paintings are more intimate por- 
trayals of eountry scenes and people. 

The Civil War oil. "The Teamsters", 
and '* preliminary sketch in graphite 
and sepia, is, perhaps, the most fa 
mous of the collection. It was widely 
exhibited jn America and in Europe. 

A small marine oil and two water- 
colors of the Gloucester period, rep- 
resent the artist at his best. The sea 
and people of the sea were his fa- 
vorite subjects. In the painting of 
marines Horner excels all Americans. 

This loan exhibition, obtained 
through the generosity of the owner, 
who wishes to remain "a friend of the 
college", will be on display through 
the month of October and until the 
middle of November.

Student Council Meeting 

The Student Council modified the 
resolution of the Interfraternity 
Council on freshman hazing at a 
meeting Held last Monday evening 
at the Deke House to the extent of 
referring the matter to the heads of 
the houses on the campus and ask- 
ing them to cooperate. 

The Interfraternity Council had 
gone on record as agreeing "that 
freshman football men should he 
exempt from all kinds of hazing 
by the fraternity liable to injure 
them". , 

The Student Council after some 
discussion approved of the above 
motion in sentiment, but saw no 
reason to pass the resolution as a

Joubtedly made a better showing. 

On the offensive Captain Ricker 
starred for the White and his oiT- 
tackle runs were the only consistent 
ground-gainers. Playing safety he 
carried many a Williams punt 
through a field covered with prospec- 
tive tacklers for distances which re- 
ceived the plaudits from the home- 
town stands. 

On the defense Torrey was particu- 
larly effective, stopping many plays 
through hi3 part of the line. Barton 
likewise several times threw the Wil- 
liams backs for losses after skirting 
behind the line of scrimmage. 

Tattle, Markoski Star for Purple 

For the Purple's offense Tuttle and 
Markoski showed to particular advan- 
tage, the former making two touch- 
downs and the latter having one to 
his credit. Rogers, nlaying in full- 
back - oo«iti«n sfeowjd — miracul:>us 
skill in snatching Tlat, bullet-like 
passes, a play tor which the White 
could offer no successful defense. 

Both teams had difficulty in hoM- 
: ng the ball, fumbles being prominent 
throughout the afternoon. The luck 
seemed t be with the Purple in re- 
covering, however, and turned ea<-h 
distance to good advantage. The 
Nome team likewise capitalized on a 
blotked Icick to score* another of it:* 

The White interference was never 
what it should have been. Captain 
Ricker's attcmnts around end were 
seldom successful and many times he 
had to cut into off-tackle plays be- 
v*tuse of the slow interferenc-*' ahead 
-f him. With but few exceptions in 
the last moments of the gsvrv how-

A Matter of Policy 

The Student Council is to be congratulated! On October 12 it 
met, and among other business considered was a measure which 
bade fair to allow athletics to encroach one step further upon 
campus life. The Council refused any action which would have 
given this chance. 

On October 1 the Inter fraternity Council went on record as 
favoring the following resolution : 

"That freshman football men should be 
exempt from all kinds of hazing by the fra- 
ternity liable to injure them." 
This was to go before the Student Council, presumably with the 
idea of turning it into a law. However, the Council defeated this 
end bv merely passing a further resolution urging the heads of 
houses to cooperate with the athletic coaches in this respect. 

The dangers of such a move, had it been made into a binding 
rule, are apparent, and too manifold to be discussed here. The 
very loose wording of the original resolution leaves yawning loop- 
holes for almost any sort of action by the college authorities. 
Other coaches would have been quick to jump on the band-wagon. 
A barrier of inequality would have been raised within each dele- 
gation and a penalty wholly undeserved placed upon those who do 
not compete in major sports. The very ends and aims which pre- 
initiation activities serve, in the drawing of delegations together, 
and in the very necessary operation of putting the freshmen in 
their place, would have been defeated. 

Furthermore, there is a, far more important aspect to the whole 
matter than these visible things. The whole question of whether 
the student body exists for athletics or athletics for the student 
body was involved. The thing had endless possibilities as an 
entering wedge for the further glorification of the Ideal of Heroic 
Athletics, which seems to be on the decline in most of the eastern 
colleges today. We shall not go into that further here, but on all 
counts this move on the part of the Student Council seems to be a 
victory for those who feel that athletics has its place and should 
be kept in it. 

A Word to the Wise 
From time immemorial Bowdoin students have exercised the 
prerogative of interpolating their own brand of humor into the 
shows at the Cumberland and elsewhere. Generally it does no 
great amount of harm to anybody, and has become almost the rec- 
ognized thing. However, when this outburst of witticisms from 
the undergraduates becomes so crude that the townspeople feel 
constrained to leave the theatre, it is time we stopped to think. 
This actually happened a few nights ago. It shouldn't happen 
again. After all the theatre belongs as much to the people of 
Brunswick as it does to us, — more, as a matter of fact. What 
passes on the campus as the latest thing in humor may not register 
that way at all with the inhabitants of the local bailiwick. We 
don't blame them for objecting. Furthermore, the management 
of the Cumberland has been very lenient in dealing with Bowdoin 
enthusiasm in the past. If this is to continue we've got to apply 
the well-known soft pedal a bit. Crude humor is really schoolboy 
stuff, and in theory at least, we have passed that stage. 

And just what would happen if a few of the freshmen did say 
hello to the upperclassmen ?

Attempt is Made to Create Interest 

in Political and Economic 


The Bowdoin division of the Nation- 
al Student Federation of America has 
announced its plans for the coming: 
year. The present committee con- 
sisting of three seniors, Ahem, 
Munro and Stanwood is to be en- 
larged by five members elected from 
among; the members of the sophomore 
and junior classes. The elections 
will take place this week, and at 
the same time a program committee 
will be chosen, whose duty it will be 
to plan the work of the local division. 

The Bowdoin division of the Federa- 
tion will attempt, thru cooperation 
with the Orient, to interest the stu- 
dents of the college in current political 
and foreign affairs and problems. It 
will not try to settle the affairs of 
the world, but only try to create an 
intelligent interest in world affairs 
r-mong the students, which it consid- 
ers a needed factor in the undergrad- 
uate outlook. The committee, which 
will meet from time to time both 
formally and informally, will under- 
take to form a consensus of student 
opinion in politics and international 
affairs. It will use every possible 
means to form a link between the 
undergraduates of the college and the 
world outside, and try to break down 
the confines of college life. 

Policy for Year m Discussed by 

Donaldson, Editor for Coining 


The editorial staff of the Bowdoir. 
Bugle, junior class year book, held 
their first meeting in the Bugle office 
at the Moulton Union last night. 
Editor-in-chief Francis H. Donaldson 
announced that an extensive reor- 
; ganixation has been planned for this 

fear's edition with a view to making 
he Bugle pay for itself. The organ- 
I iiation of the various departments 
was also announced. 

Albert P. Madeira '33, is associate 
editor and his assistant editors a it- 
Robert F. Kingsbury and Robert S. 
Fletcher, both sophomores. Freshman 
candidates for editorial positions arc 
Paul E. Hartmann, Fred C. Garcelon, 
John 0. Parker, Oilman C. Ellis, Ar- 
thur M. Stratton, Stuart E. Thoitc?, 
and John Henry. 

Smith Photo Editor 
Richard M. Boyd, business manager, 
| is working with Jack C. Gazlay and 
Robert G. Dowling, assistant man- 
agers, but freshman business staff 
candidates have not yet been called 
out. Eliot Smith, photographic edi- 
tor, is assisted by Robert F. Kings- 
bury and Joel Y. Marshall. Assign- 
ments have been given to three 
freshmen. James D. Crowell, Horace 
Greely, and Robert Sherman. 

"This year we are running three 
I separate competitions", stated Don- 
"and the editorial, photo - 

We are sore afraid that the flower 
of Bowdoin manhood has wilted ut- 
terly. On ail sides of the campus we 
see figures who once were men, 
dawdling with little, bitsy vo-yon on 
strings. We can stand seeing strong 
men lapping lollvpops and ice cream 
cones . . . but rolling yo-yos is loo 
much . . . 

Someone should step up to Pro- 
fessor Hormell and holler in hi s car: 
"Where were you, Orren Ch aimer, en 
the afternoon of the eighth, when yen 
should have been correcting quia 
papers?" And what can the poor 
gentleman reply but: "I was in the 
Union with Don Lancaster listening 
to the World Series." So you lads 
who were puzzled by the curious 
marks such as "5-2 favor of Cards" 
fast forget about it . . . 

It goes too far! Now a Deke runs 
in to borrow our phone, with the plea 
that his outfit isn't connected. 
How's to get a Phone Bill Payment 
Commission, Mr. Hoover? .". . And 
we'd like one of you to ask Herbie 
Hurtman what the word "cute 
means . . . 

We A to L's get it in the neck as 
far as Chapel's concerned. Too many 
of us for one side, and not enough M 
to Z's even to fill three rows across 
the aisle. Of course nothing will be 
done about it . . . And who else gave 
in to the latest racket — girls selling 
neckwear (at least that's what THEY 
called it) in the fraternity houses? 
"Aw please, mister, we're woiking our 
way t'rough college" . . . Help! . . . 



They Can Save Heavy Repair 

Bills By Taking Simple 


Warning that frozen motors an- 
nually cost car owners millions of 
dollars, the American Automobile 
Association declared today that mo- 
torists can save themselves heavy re- 
pair bills and at the same time di- 
vert approximately $50,000,000 into 
business channels by preparing their 
cars to withstand the depredations of 
Jack Frost. 

The A.A.A. cited tabufations of the 
United States Weather Bureau to 
show that a downtrend of the temper- 
ature may be expected throughout the 
country within the next three weeks, 
and with the possible exception of the 
extreme South, it may be expected to 
faH as much as thirty degrees. 

Pointing out .that more than 18,- 
000,000 motor vehicles are registered 
in the area wheie the temperature 
falls the lowest, the national motor- 
ing body said that an average of three 
dollars spent in preparing each of 
these for cold, weather would mean the 
expenditure p_f^«around $50,000,000 
with garages and service stations. 

"At the same time", said the 
A.A.A., "car owners would save them- 
selves heavy repair bills and the an- 
noyance and trouble resulting from 
frozen motors and batteries. These 
usually follow in the wake of sudden 
drops in the temperature and often 
destroy the mechanical efficiency of 
the car, sometimes causing damage 
beyond repair. 

"While anti-freeze preparation^ 
form the basis of protecting the car 
in winter, they should not be used 
until the automobile has been made 
leady for the change from summer to 
winter conditions." 

Some of the simple precautions that 
should be taken are as follows: 

1. Have all rust and scale removed 
from the engine jacket, radiator and 
other parts of the cooling system. 
This should extend to disconnection of 
the hose and complete cleansing with 
a washing solution, preferably one 
containing soda. 

2. Tighten all parts of the cool- 
ing system. Careful attention should 
be given to hose connections, gaskets, 
expansion plates, drain cocks, pump 
packing and grease cups or fittings 
on the water pump. The radiator 
should also be inspected for leaks. 

8. Use anti-freeze solutions with 
boiling points above that of water. It 
is desirable to use a solution that will 
not boil out and leave the motor un- 

The statement continues: 

"There is a tendency of many car 
owners to await the first report of 
freezing weather and then rush to the 
evaporates and suddenly the motorist 
is faced with having his car engine 
freeze at a time when the car is most 
nearest filling station, drain off some 
water, and fill the radiator with an 
anti-freeze preparation. In the mean- 
time, small leaks have crept into the 
cooling system and passed unnoticed 
in the summer. As a result, the anti- 
freeze mixture, put in without an in- 
spection of the cooling system, soon 

"The Bureau of Standards, which 
has been studying various types of 
anti-freeze solutions, points out that 
where a glycerine (or glycol) solution 
is used, it is essential that any leak- 
age in the cooling system be repaired 
to avoid waste. The Bureau also 
says that there is no reason to believe 
that distilled glycerine (or glycol) 
causes leaks except insofar as its 
solvent action, tending to loosen scale, 
may uncover cracks or holes in the 

"Regardless of the type of anti- 
freeze used, the motorist should avoid 
waste by having the level of the liquid 
in the cooling system at least two 
inches below the overflow to alio* 
for thermal expansion." 

To whom it may concern: 

The second page of the last Orient 
of Oct. 7 seemed to contain matter 
which was a bit contradictory. The 
reader first, comes across a very fine| 
editorial that concerned college spirit.; 
Then as "Mustard and Cress" was 
perused it seemed that the object of 
the editorial was entirely lost. Rather 
unfortunate that some people feel n 
their express duty to sit back and 
criticira, destructively, something 
that they haven't got the gumption or . 
ability to do themselves. 

We have a football team that can 
make a good showing if we will only 
get behind it and do our part. Who is 
going to put his best into anything 
when he knows that a win is merely 
taken for granted, and that a loss will 
arouse plenty of ineffectual but per- 
haps nasty criticism? Perhaps a lit- 
tle of the proper spirit would add 
greatly to the effectiveness of our 
team and the team might even feel 
mote like giving all that they've got, 
if they dont feel that they've got to 
endure a lot of unnecessary "Mud- 
slinging" after they've done their best. •

The University of Nebraska has 
started a school for cheer leaders. 
Prospective leaders will be given in-

The rushing system at Tufts has 
even greater restrictions. Open rush- 1 
ing, during which freshmen are enter- ■ 
tained, lasts only five and one-half: 
days, and is terminated by the house 
dances on Saturday night. All bids I 
must be offered through the dean's I 
office before Sunday evening, and ac-j 
ceptance must be made before Wed- ! 
nesday noon. Fraternities which at-! 
tempt to coerce or in any way influ- ' 
ence a freshman during this period 
are liable to suspension from the In- 
terfraternity council. 

Last spring the A.T.O. House at the ; 
University of Maine was destroyed by 
fire, and a week ago Sundav the Tuft.-; 
chapter house was threatened by a 
blaze "of undetermined origin". Ap-

of Alumni. 

The detailed report of investments 
shows approximately five sixths of 
the total to be represented by stocks 
and bonds, the latter classification 
representing about two and three 
quarters millions. In addition to the 
book value the report lists the market 
value of these securities as of June 

An interesting point in the report 
is the appearance for the first time 
of the detailed expenditures in th? 
Department of Physical Education, 
the accounts of the Athletic Council 
having been taken over by the Treas- 
urer's office at the beginning of the 
year. Another comparatively new 
item is the Faculty Retirement Fund 
which has provided for the benefit of 
the fifteen professors previously as-! 
sociated with the Carnegie Founda- 
tion plan. In the two years since its 
establishment it has grown to more 
than $18,000. 

Small Deficit 

The deficit for the year amounts to 
less than $1900, and is remarkably 
low when one considers the circum- 
stances of the year past. 

Gifts not mentioned above are $10,- 
000 from Frederick W. Pickard, '94 
for use in the development of Pick- 
ard Field, a gift from him for the 
maintenance of a teaching fellowship 
in French and a second gift of $500 
from Mr. Walter G. Davis of Port 
land "to encourage undergraduate in- 
terest in international affairs". In 
addition to the undergraduate' awards 
mentioned above, nearly $10,000 was 
provided by the Garcelon and Met

arships among a group of Bowdoin

Ibis Holds Second Meeting 

By a new Interfraternity Pact at 
Columbia, a majority of the Greek 
Letter societies have endorsed "de- 
ferred rushing" as opposed to the 
"cut-throat" system still practiced by 
some of the fraternities. Although 
houses non-signatory to the pact may 
legally rush freshmen at any time, 
only a few have taken advantage of 
this. A freshman approached on the 
subject preferred to "wait, look 
around and be sure" before pledging. 
That line has a familiar ring. 

After all the Polo Team shouldn't 
have played on Sunday, anyway ... . 

Three Engagements for Tea Dances 
Already Arranged » 
The Bowdoin Polar Bears have fin-' 
ally cooperated and the two oppos- 
ing factions each claiming the posi- 
tion of the Polar Bears of last year 
have joined to form one orchestra. 
i The management of the orchestra in 
general will be cooperative except as j 
regards the gym dances. In that case ■ 
Robert Haydn '34, will be respon-j 
, sible for the engagement. 

To allow for two engagements at 
I the same time, chiefly in the case of i 
! double tea dances, there are really j 
, two orchestras although the exact di- 
i vision and in some cases a second 
' man has not been decided upon yet. ; 
Three engagements for tea dances j 
have been made already and the sue ] 
< cess of the orchestra at the gym dance ' 
j after the Wesleyan game will decide ! 
' the future success of the organiza- 1 
i tion. 

The orchestra as now organized con- ' 
' sists of the following: 

Piano, Eliot Smith, Henry Cleaves;: 

drums, Thurston Sumner, Thomas 

Payson; saxophones, John Baker > 

(Double on the clarinet); tenor, Fran- 

; cis Donaldson (Double on the clari-i 

net); 3rd alto, John Parker; baritone, 

. Edwin Fuller ( Double on the clari- 

Inet); banjo, Arthur Moyer, Dura 

The second meeting of the Ibis this 
year was held Monday evening, Octo- 
ber 12, 1931. The constitution of the 
club was read and incidental busi- 
ness considered. Plans for the future 
meetings were drawn up by a select- 
ed committee: Charles Bilodeau, Ro- 
land Kramer, Warren Steams and the 
president, Philip C. Ahern. and sec- 
retary-treasurer, George T. Sewall.

them as experience, however, the 
backfield quartet ought to click more 
smoothly, and eliminate that butter- 
fingered playing so costly against the 
Purple and Gold. 

Morris Brown, the battering-ram 
of this light backfield, played a beau- 
tiful game last Saturday as defense 
man behind the line. Time after time 
he steadied the crumbling first line 

Each time the White got its offense 
running against Williams, a dropped 
ball called a halt. Once, after hold- 
ing for downs under their own goal 
posts, the White Bears started a 
drive which collapsed as the pigskin 
eluded the fingers of a too-eager (jack.

the Cards will put forth their all to 
avenge matters." The Connecticut ! 
grid team boasts a scrappy crew of ! 
warriors, which uses an aerial attack j 
as its most effective weapon. The of- |

around one Captain Tirrell and one 
Larj-y Schlums. Both are well known 
to Bowser, for it was this flashy duo 
which piled up all Wesleyan's twelve 
counters last year. 

Schlums hurls the aerial bombs for 
the Redmen, and also converts him-

those human battering rams; at this

huge team, away out of their class.

Dekes-D.U. and A.T.O.-Chi 

Psi Battle to Scoreless Ties 
— Zetes Forfeit 

Two scoreless ties, a single-goal vic- 
tory, and a forfeit marked the be- 
ginning of a new season in interfra- 
ternity touch football. While the 
games were being hotly contested, the 
effects of the changed rules were ob- 
served closely. 

In League A, the boys from Kappa 
Sigma were conceded a technical vic- 
tory in view of the fact that their 
scheduled rivals, the Zetas, failed to 
collect the required number of men. 
In the other game on the calendar, the 

Deke ball-carriers struggled to a 0-0 
score with the D. U. representatives. 
Means led the attack for the Dekes, 
while the chief D. U. threat was 

League B boasted the only scoring 
team, as the Sigma Nu lads pre- 
sented a strong front to win a well- 
earned victory over their Maine street 
neighbors, the A. D.'s, 6-0. The Sig- 
ma Nu team worked well, showing 
great promise. From down by the 
railroad tracks came the A.T.O.'s to 
battle the Chi Psi's in another score-' 
less contest. Both teams threatened! 
at times to score, but the opposition 
tightened and held. 

As a result of the low scoring ex- 
hibited in each game, it has been de- 
cided to lengthen the periods of play; 
from eight te ten minutes each, toj 
give more opportunity for scoring. 

Another deadlock marked a fiercely 
contested Interfraternity touch fbot-j 
ball title, as the Beta held the Non- 
fraternity lads to a 6-6 score. Theta i 
Delta Chi, after scoring only twice | 
the first half, rolled up a lop-sided 
42-0 score over a disorganized Psi U. 

Beinie Crystal, playing a fast-run- 
ning, swift passing game, stood out 
as the individual star in the first bat- 
tle. Mai Walker, lanky speedster, 
snared pass after pass from Psi U. 
backs to score four touchdowns for) 
the Eta Charge. 


Sportsman's Pen 

The Wesleyan game on Whittier 
Field this Saturday will see the Polar 
Bear scrapping in his own backyard 
after two disastrous skirmishes 
abroad. Since Wesleyan crumbled 
37-0 before Columbia last week, the 
invaders will probably furnish less 
dynamite than Williams provided, 
while the Qowser-planned defenses 
are gradually gaining strength. 

Among Saturday's returns: Maine 
toppled Connecticut Aggies 7-0. 
Bates sank Norwich 34-0 and Colby 1 
bowed to a fair Tufts aggregation 
26-6. Morey's eleven at Lewiston is 
quite obviously the sane Itird run-! 
fling, shifty machine that captured 
the State series last yesr. 

Those who watched the Jayvees 
against Governor Dummer Academy, 
were impressed by the hard tackling 
of the prep school players. Harry; 
Plaisted and "Tuffy" Burdell worked 
hard for the ineligibles, but quarter- 
back Walker of the visitors held the : 
limelight with several spectacular! 
dashes. He also took care of the 
scoring, making all 19 points in the 

This boy Bush, who scores when 
M. S. C. scores, raised his sum total 
to 56 points against Middlebury. He 
is still in the van among the high 
scorers of the East, and as a mere 
Sophomore, his football career looks 
fairly bright. 

Pickard Field beeome R the real cen- 
ter of college activity these bright 
afternoons.. Five freshman elevens 
work out on the west field inside the 
fence, varsity candidates drill at the 
south end of the field in an area now 
equipped with floodlights, and Jack 
Magee's two squads of distance run- 
ners lope mile after mile around a 
grassy course. Tennis enthusiasts 
meanwhile keep the courts smoking; 


Passes and spinner plays spelled 
defeat for the White. The short 
bullet-like passes over the line had 
the Bowdoin men completely fooled 
and longer passes were often success- 
ful. A few times as many as four or 
five Williams men were free to pro- 
vide interference for the prospective 
receiver of the pass. 

On the other hand the Polar Bears 
showed much improvement over last 
week's engagement; tackling was 
hard at most times and the team, led 
by Hay, were speedily at hand to nab 
the receiver of «iach Bowdoin punt. 
There was a snap in the way the 
plays were run off which was only 
counteracted by the inexperience of 
interference and the lack of weight 
in the team. 

In the first quarter of the game the 
White offensive seemed fairly effec- 
tive. After gaining good ground, 
however, the Bowdoin backs fumbled 
the ball frequently, each time it be- 
ing recovered by a Williams man. 
Williams Scores Early 

On the other hand the Williams 
eleven, skillfully alternating plays 
and gaining ground successfully, 
drove the ball down the field until 
Senn was able to cross the ?oal line 
for the first touchdown of the game. 
The attempt for extra point failed. 

With eight minutes to play in the 
second quarter Ricker punted from 
his own twenty-five yard line, but the 
referee ruled Williams off-side OJi the 
plav. Choosing to to' another kick, 
Ricker dropped back but his line 
failed to hold and the kick was 
blocked. Williams recovered on the 
twenty-yard line and with a short 
pass over the line carried the ball to 
the one yard line. On the next play 
Markoski threw himself over the line 
for the second touchdown. An at- 
tempted place-kick for extra point 
failed by yards.

Are they as good as when the

are a whole lot better. No doubt about that.

Tobacco used to be dried by air — 

Now Liggett & Myers alone has tntrty-

Chesterfield tobaccos — both Turkish

that money can buy. 

And the way Chesterfield tobaccos are 
blended and cross-blended is like making a

greater smoothness, more mildness and a 
more pleasing aroma — a fragrance and flavor 
not to be found in any other cigarette.

Williams again took the ball and car* 
ried it deep into the White territory 
by means of short pass e s and line 
plunges. Pressed for time, they at* 
tempted a longer pass and the period 
ended as the pass was grounded over 
the goal line. Score at the end of the 
half, Williams 12, Bowdoin 0. 

In the half of JJie game Coach 
Bowser made many substitutiops in 
an attempt to get a successful com- 
bination, but at no time did they seem 
able to cope with the heavier Williams 
machine. With five minutes of the 
third quarter gone, Markoski of Wil- 
liams broke through right tackle un- 
der perfect interference and ran from 
his thirty-five yard line for what 
seemed slated for a touchdown, but 
Gatchell, overtaking him from the 
rear after a long run, made a most 
spectacular flying tackle, the gem of 
the game, and brought the runner 
down on Bowdoin 's twenty-five yard 
line. After gaining five vards Wil- 
liams fumbled .and recovered for a 
first down. ' A long pass over the goal 
line was unsuccessful and the danger 
was passed. 

Polar Bear Drive Fails 

The White then staged what prom- 
ised to be a drive down the field. Cap- 
tain Ricker threw a beautiful pass to 
midfield which Gatchell caught neat- 
ly for a first down. After several 
slashes at the line which netted little, 
Ricker skirted the end but failed of 
first down by inches. 

Williams took the ball and by virtue 
of a series of line plays, spinners and 
reverses, carried it for three consecu- 
tive first downs before the period 
ended. In the first plays of the Xaurth 
quarter Tuttle penetrated right tackle 
under fine interference for the touch- 
down. He also place-kicked the goal 
for extra point. 

In the fourth quarter both teams 
resorted to many passes in a desper- 
ate attempt to score. Ricker received 
the Williams kick-off on his fifteen 
yard line and, in a piece of broken 
field running which caused the Wil- 
liams stands to rise to their feet, car- 
ried the ball to his forty-three yard 
line. The drive was killed when a 
pass from Ricker to the thirty vard 
line was intercepted and downed on 
the spot. 

Tuttle carried the ball around right 
end for a nice gain of twenty yards, 
but was forced to kick when the Bow- 
doin line braced. Ricker received the 
punt on his ten yard line, but could 
not escape the Purple tacklers. Lar- 
son neatly caught a pass from Ricker 
on the twenty-seven vard line. Wil- 
liams then braced in turn and Ricker 
kicked to the home team's forty-five 
yard line. 

Tuttle A rain Scores 

Later in the period Williams inter- 
ceDted a Bowdoin pass and ran the 
ball to the ten vard line. Again Tut- 
tle twisted his way through tackle for 
the fourth touchdown of the day. The 
attempt for point failed. 

Bowdoin again received the ball 
and in an attempt for score Ricker 
tossed a pass which was intercepted 
by Rogers on the forty yard line and 
was run to the thirty. Again a low 
short pass netted sixteen yards. How- 
ever a longer Williams pass over the 
goal line was incomplete and the ball 
went to the White. Shortly after- 
wards the game came to an end with 
the score standing at Williams 25, 
Bowdoin 0.

Playing a slashing game of offen- 
sive polo but lacking a defensive sys- 
tem to carry them through to vic- 
tory, the Bowdoin Riding C!ub went 
down to its second straight defeat at 
the hands of the Portland Freebooters 
last Sunday morning, coming out of 
the hard battle on the losing end of a 
19 to 6 tally. 

"Doc" Fuller, playing at Number two 
position on the Polar Bears was the 
outstanding star of the game tallying 
four goals and playing the best de- 
fensive style on the field. Louis Clark, 
Number one for the visitors was the 
high scorer with seven goals to his 
credit, the majority of them being the 
result of heady teamwork. His broth- 
er tallied four goals to equal Fuller's 

The narrow, rough field behind the 
Psi U psi Ion house provided for few 
long drives, short snappy passes be- 
ing the order of the day. Drummond 
and Kemp for the victors worked their 
mallets to perfection, sending the wil- 
low through the posts, often with 
three Bowdoin men among them. Free 
Harlow, at back for the Polar Bears, 
broke up a majority of the Portland 
rushes, and pulled off most of the 
long, lifting drives made during the 

Fuller Scores Three 

It was not until the last chukker 
that tiie Bowdoin men got the feel 
of the mallet in their hands, and even 
then were held even by their oppo- 
nents. Three goals whistled through 
the standard during the last stanza, 
Fuller pulling off all of them. But 
the Portland men methodically eveneu 
the count as the inexperienced White 
men left the field wide open in their 
anxiety to bring the count up. 

The third of the series of four 
matches will be held next Sunday 
morning at the more adaptive field of 
the Topsham Fair Grounds. With the 
play of the Bowdoin quartet steadily 
improving, a close match is ex- 
pected. The time is set for 10.30

Lavender Lead* Field to Wia Race 
in Fast Time 

Time trials which included both the 
varsity and freshman cross country 
teams over a 21 mile course were eon- 
ducted by Coach Magee Monday, with 
Steve Lavender coming out in the 
van for the varsity, and Tom Uniackc 
scampering away with the Frosh 

The shortened course, which leads 
up Maine stieet to a fork about a 
mile outside the town, gave all the 
winners a stiff workout, and it was 
only with the hardest kind of exer- 
tions the runners finished. Lavender 
hung back in the 'varsity race and 
beat out his opponents with a biasing 
sorint across the campus. Larry 
Usher was a close second, Tom Mor- 
ns third and George Sewall a close- 
up fourth. But a few yards separated 
tne four leaders, with the rest of the 
field left far in the rear. Lavender'*? 
time, 13 minutes, 6 seconds, was one 
of the best ever recorded over the 

Tom L'niacke made a procession out 
of the freshman race, finishing a 
good 25 yards ahead of Emmons 
Cobb, who beat out the field for sec- 
ond. L'niacke went over the course in 
13 minutes, 37 seconds, over ten sec- 
onds behind the Frosh record for the 

Strict training is the rule for the 
next week, with both Frosh and Var- 
sity meets on tap. The Interfrater- 
nity meet, one of the high spots of 
the season, is scheduled for the lattei 
part of October. 

And why is it that the football 
team, the big sissies, have to scram

Harvard Phi Beta Kappa 

Poet of 1929 Refutes 


Gatchell Goes Through Right Tackle for Eight Yards 

Robert Hillyer, professor and poet 
of Harvard University, summed up 
for his audience last Friday night at 
the Moulton Union the underlying 
necessities of rhythm in English verse 
In doing so he also gave a brief il- 
luminating survey of ♦ho historical 
development of verse rhvthm and a 
aeries of caiefully chosen and master- 
fully read selections of English 
poetry. "The rhythmic scheme of the 
finest poetry", he said, "can be com- 
pared to a grape arl>or. The accen- 
tual rhythm is the poles, set at even 
spaces, and the time rhythm, the 
grapevines, spreading in graceful dis- 
array over the poles". 

The Harvard Phi Beta Kappa poet 
was introduced by Professor Stanley 
P. Chase of the Bowdoin English De- 
partment. "It is often a suiprise to 
find a poet on a college faculty. In 
my owu days at Harvard I hardly re- 
garded the professors of the English 
department as a nest of singing birds. 
At present heie is one man who has 
already earned for himself a reputa- 
tion as a poet of careful workman- 
ship. We welcome hini here on that 
account and also because he come* 
from that university wi*h whom we 
have always had the closest connec- 
Poetry for the Ear and Not the E>e 

"I should like to discuss infoimally 
tonight the rhythms of English verse", 
Professor Hillyer started. "Of a 
necessity I must analvze according to 
my own notions. Technical matteit. 
have but one end in view, to prepare 
for better oral presentation. There is 
no poetry so subtle as English poetry, 
with such manifold variations, such 
harmonious departures, and with such 
simultaneous combinations of several 
rhythms. Study is necessary to read 
poetry. Unfortunately w e are mor--' 
apt nowadays to see than to hear. 
This is a mistake. . Modern poets 
seem to address their work to the 
sense of sight rather than fb the 
sense of hearing. E. E. Cummings 
has scattered his verse all over the 
page, with even words broken up. It 
seems that it would take only a 
typographers' strike to end poetry. 

Poetry is really something to be 
heard, not seen. One can read lines 
accenting the feet so that accented 
lines seem in monotones. On the 
other hand one can read,— for exam- 
ple Shakespeare's verse, — so that it 
seems like prose and we wonder why 
the poet botheied to put it into verse 
at all. Between the two, lies the 
right way. 
Two Roots to the Rhythmic Scheme 

To find out the basis of the ac 
centual rhvthm we must go in the first 
place back to the early English. It 
was monosyllabic and usually sung to 
a musical instrument so that th-i 
beats were accented. In the second 
place the poet was allowed only o<j 
many beats to a line. This leaves two 
elements. The first is the accentual 
pattern and the second is the syllabi;- 
ireedom. If the foimer is broken

In the second quarter of the game last Saturday between Bowdoin and Wesleyan the Polar Bears started a long drive from mid-field which promised to net a touchdown. How- 
ever, after getting the ball deep in to the Middletowners* territory on a series of line and end plays, the) lost the ball on clowns when Wesleyan braced. In this se ies of plavo the 
White appeared to have a combination of plays which would carry them successfully through the rest of the season. However, they lacked the punch to put it over the goal line. Picture

The major part that America ha;- 
played in ironing out grievance:; 
among peoples of the Far East, not- 
ably the Turkish and Greek, was de- 
scribed by last Sunday's Chapel 
speaker, Professor S. Ralph Harlow, 
who has spent years in mission worl: 
in this troubled section of the globe 
Last year Professor Harlow was a 
visiting professor at the School of 
Religion in Athens, Greece. 

In opening his address Professo' 
Harlow declared that science tells \ir, 
that there are no "miracles" ever per- 
formed; but that, reasoning from 
the results he has seen take form ir. 
his work, he is inclined to believe 
that a miracle has been effected in the 
international feelings of the Far East. 
"The work of Americans", he said, 
"made it possible for the healing of 
these terrible sores". Religion of

"thrown their lives in their work",

American Materialism 

Adrian Van Sinderen, influen- 
tial banker of New York City, 
will deliver a lecture at the Moul- 
ton Union, October 27, on the 
subject "The Study of Rare 
Books." Mr. Van Sinderen is a 
Yale Graduate of the class of 
1910 and is particularly active 
today in music, charities, banking 
and public service. 

The lecturer is peculiarly fitted 
to discuss this phase of literature, 
being the owner of one of the 
finest collections of rare books to 
be found. He will particularly 
emphasize the American books 
in his lecture which comes as the 
result of years of research. 

Mr. Van Sinderen is not only 
well known in financial circles, 
but has given much of his time 
to social service. He is connected 
with many charitable institution:, 
and a trustee at the Gunnery

recently by Coach Don Lancaster, 
who asserts he has an excellent team 
to put on the field against the strong 
prep-schoolers next Friday. 

A scrimmage with the varsitv lasl 
week, and probably another one thir- 
week, a complete code of signals, and 
an accurate defensive system are all 
projects helping the Fiosh *a put on 
what appears to be one of the great- 
est elevens ever to represent Bowdoir 
first-year men. "We have a bunch of 
pretty heavy boys in theie," is Coach 
Lancaster's way of saying that the 
team will average heavier than the 
varsity itself, and l>e a tower of 
strength against teams who depend on 
power alone. 

Lancaster Pleased 

"The vaisity showed us some pretty 
fine tricks the other day, but I wm 
satisfied with the way the boys 
played," said Coach Lancaster. "Kent 
and Low in the line and Baravalle and 
Abelon in the backfield were the men 
who held my eye the most, and they 
seem to be developing into vt ry good 
players. Every man who saw action 
showed up well against the regulars, 
and I'm pleased with the showing 
they made."

Several Injuries 
.Bowdoin held the whin ha, id 
throughout the entire first half, gain- 
ing almost at will through a helpless 
Crimson line, but a flood of injuries 
and a rejuvenated Wesleyan team 
sent them to a third period defeat. 
The Polar Bears regained their 
equilibrium in the stanza, but 
were once more hurled beak when they 
iieared the goat line. Johnnie Mil- 
liken, one of the best, centers in Maine 
this" year, went out in the second pe- 
riod when a hard tackle paralyzed a 
nerve in his shoulder, and he was not 
able to return to the game. With 
Swede Larsen out with an infected 
foot and Don Gould on the sidelines 
with his shoulder strapped up, Bow- 
doin's chances looked slim, and nar- 
rowed down even more when Jit Bick- 
er's wrenched muscles pained him so - 
much that he was obliged to leave the 
game, and Morris Brown suffered a 
leg injury when he was severely 
blocked by an ovcrzealous Red, intei- 

Wesleyan Blocking Poor 

However, battered and bruised as 
they were, the Polar Bears gave all 
they had to come out in front, ami 
missed by only a few ya:ds. Tne sheer 
brilliance of Schlums, Tlrrell,. Lodge 
and Wells in the Wesleyan backfield 
was illustrated time and again when 
they ran without interference, find

their own blockers would stop them 
with their clumsy footwork.

row to start the second half. Lodge, 
who had run the ball bu f once in the 
ush down the field, faded back ami 
took the ball from cen*er on a long 
end run. With his interference for 
once keeping clear of him, he cut 
wider and wider, barely escaped be- 
ing tackled by Barton, then shot in, 
swung down the sidelines and out- 
raced the entire Whi f e backfield t go 
across the line standing up, a good 
three yards ahead of the first Bowdoin 
man, Gatchell. 

Polar Bears Receive 

The Polar Bears took the kickoff to 
start the game, and Ricker ran tho 
ball ten yards to the 30 yard marker 
before eoing down. An offside pen- 
alty and two center bucks proved in- 
etiectual. so Brown punted t Wes- 
leyan's 31 yard line, where Milliken 
dropped Schlums in his t acks. 

Tirrcll started off well by knifinrr 
through tackle for 11 yards before 
being brought to earth by Ricker. 
After two non-gaining bucks, Sch- 
lums slipped a pass to C. Brown, who 
was nailed on the Bowdoin 38 yard 
strip after a gain of 17 yards. Thcie 
Bowdoin took a determinad stand, 
however, and gathered in the ball on 
downs on their own 45 yard ribbon.

Wednesday. October 21. 1931. 

No. 12 


Bowdoin's football team made its first home appearance last 
Saturday and that appearance left several distinct impressions. 

Rumor had led undergraduates to believe that the 1931 edition 
of the Polar Bears was a woefully disorganized eleven. But in 
this Dame Rumor was very much mistaken, for under existing 
circumstances no team could possibly have made a more favorable 
showing than did the White on Saturday. It cannot be denied, 
however, that weaknesses were apparent here and there, but on 
the other hand the team showed its coaching, and was in no sense 
a discredit to Bowdoin as far as actual play was concerned. If 
there were those who came to carp and scoff they went away with 
no honest complaints from this quarter. 

There exists one point, however, which was exasperating to 
the most detached spectator. Just why did Bowdoin upon three 
separate occasions sweep within scoring distance of Wesleyan's 
goal and upon each occasion fall short of its objective. There are 
those who would attribute this to the stiffening of the Cardinal 
line. There are others who would say that Bowdoin has not the 
power. The answer is not here. 

Another alternative lies nearer the truth. Nowhere on the field 
did there exist an idea of a touchdownA Nowhere in the stands did 
there exist; even a hope of such a thing. In the middle of the field 
the team looked spottily brilliant In the scoring zone the whole 
show fizzled and died. 

The inanity of playing flashy football in the middle of the 
gridiron, may well be compared to a batter driving a long spec- 
tacular fly into the hands of a waiting fielder. It looks fine, but 
according to the rules it doesn't count ! The objective in both cases 
is to score. To fail to keep this objective ever in mind is io defeat 
the purpose of the game 

Let it be clearly understood that this is in no sense a critieism 
of the team or of its coach. It is, however, a very definite and 
striking criticism of the mental attitude of Bowdoin undergrad- 
uates. It is high time this college wanted to finish what it started. 
It is high time Bowdoin undergraduates wanted a touchdown ! 

It is indeed plain, that in no other frame of mind will the basic 
purpose of football be accomplished.

Hillyer Interview 

A: "1 love th e New Yorker." 

Q: "And Ogden NaRh?" 

A: "What's that one about thf 

- Q: "The one sbout the turtle's 
much better." (Have no fear, gentle 
reader, no veise will be printed.) 

Dropping all attempts at conven- 
tional reporter stuff, the conversation 
turned to Amy Lowell. Mr. Hillyer 
knew her. Miss Lowell lived in Cam- 
bridge in a big house surrounded by 
gardens and filled with books. A 
specially strong safe, all scientifically 
arranged to protect the piecious 
Keats M.S.'s and letters, hid behind 
some false book-shelves in the library. 

One day a careless and uneducated 
hand left a dish of water in the safe. 
It had been cleaning. Days later Mr. 
Hillyer and Miss lxiwell opened the 
safe so scientifically arranged and 
found the M.S.'s, yes, they found them 
all mildewed (and not even Mr. Mor- 
gan could have bought them). Miss 
Lowell threw down her cigar and aban- 
doned all pretense. They diied those 
lovely letters, those lyrics, on the 
radiators. This mechanic age! 

Miss Lowell would invite you (not 
you) to dinner and then not show up 
till the salad. Then she would gobble 
and chatter and invariably beat you 
(not you) in the end. Then she would 
talk until midnight, or un+il you 
dropped. But she wrote "Patterns" 
and "Lilacs". 

Mr. Hillyer told stories about prac- 
tically anyone. There was a darb 
about Robert Bridges and John Maso- 
field. It is apparent that Mr. Bridges 
did not, well, admire Mr. Maseneld. 
The story is one of those one whis- 
pers. Or are there ladies present? 

However there is a time and endur- 
ance limit even to poets, so Mr. Hill- 
yer had to leave. As he went out of 
the door, the reporter, obstreperous 
as ever, threw: 

Q: "Do you like Lewis Carroll?" 

A: "Reuil him once a year." 

Q: "Gilbert and Sullivan?" 

A: /'Love them both." 

Q: "Have you a book-case in your 

A: "I have". 

So you see that Mr. Hillyer is not 
only a poet and an English teacher, 
he is a gentleman, and quite cultured-

Well, even with the ripening ex- 
perience of a year behind him, Boyd 
Bartlett is still hopeful . . . stili 
hampered by those same vain hopes. 
He still thinks that the piteous moan 
of "Gilch wants to see Zilch after the 
game" brings results; he still think.* 
that there are between fifteen and 
twenty yards to each first down; oil 
we could go on, but we won't, because 
between vou and me, we like the dain 
stuff. '

Wastfe* — A Co+legt BotJtotore! 

"Tis a period of depression!" or 
words to that effect, was the keynote 
struck by President Sills in his open- 
ing chapel address. I most heartily 
agree with this statement aa will the 
rest of the student body. Yet we find 
the prices of books this year as high 
as usual I 

I suggest, as has been often sug- 
gested in the past, that the College 
open a bookstore in the room provided 
for that purpose in the Moulton Union. 
The store need not be large and need 
not carry anything? but the necessities 
of college life, such as text-books, sta- 
tionery, paper, ink, pencils and the 
like. If such a store were started and 
run efficiently by the Collere I feel 
sure that prices on text-books could 
be reduced considerably, thus making 
a considerable savin? to the student 
body and at a profit to the College. It 
is doubtlessly true that the cafeteria 
is not securing sufficient patronage 
to make it a paying proposition. The 
student on entering the Union to buy 
his books would naturally buy his 
smokes, lunches, sodas and candy at 
the cafeteria. The impetus to the 
business would be noticeably felt by 
the collevr authorities, I believe. 
* A bookstore run on a narrow profit 
margin, with perhaps an enlarged 
second-hand hook exchange in con- 
junction with jt. would thus be a dis- 
tinct advantage to student and col- 
lege alike. 

"Lower nrices, better service." 
could well be the motto of a well- 
organised Bowdoin College Bookstore! 

Comments on this important mat- 
ter from graduate and undergraduate 
alike ar. invited.

accomplishments of Americans bring- 
ing relief to the needy in the Far 
East, Professor Harlow stated this to 
be unfair criticism that does not in- 
clude another class of Americans, 
who are certainly in direct contrast 
to the indifferent. 

In sixteen years tens of thousands 
of the natives had been driven from 
their homes into the desert — some of 
them massacred. College graduates 
and athletic directors were mentioned 
as included in those who have co- 
operated in the achievements of the 
missions during the past century- 
Three hundred and sixty schools have 
been built, colleges and hospitals 
established, conditions of the prisons 
improved, and even athletic fields de- 
veloped. Professor Harlow said that 
he personally coached a number of na- 
tives in playing baseball and basket- 

Turko-Greek Good-Will 

Since the period of stress between 
the Turk* and Greeks, the promotion 
of good-will between these two coun- 
tries has been amazing. As an ex- 
ample the speaker cited an event that 
occurred a few years ago at the 
Athens Stadium. Not long before, the 
countries were at swords' points, but 
on this occasion the flag of Turkey 
and the flag of Greece waved side by 
side. The occasion was an interna- 
tional sports meet. In the quarter 
mile iace a Greek and a Turk were 
neck and neck all the way. The Greek 
won by a few inches. Immediately 
after the finish the lad from Turkey 
put his arm around the shoulders of 
the victor, congratulating him. The 
Turkish delegation to this internation- 
al competition lauded the Greek au- 
thorities for the welcome which they 
received. Such accord would have 
been impossible at any time preced- 
ing that year. 

This spirit of friendship ha3 
prompted a desire on the part of the 
Turkish nation for a world of under- 
standing. Another war would find 
them, not with a lust to kill but with 
an instinct to save by means of a 
disarmament conference. 

American missionary colleges in 
the Far East sponsor all fields of en- 
deavor. Education is brought to the 
Egyptians, Armenians, Syrians, 
Arabs, and even Gandhi's Indians. By 
the work of Americans a spirit of 
brotherhood has grown among these 
people of the Far Kast that has never 
been known to exist. 





down entirely— it mav be loosened— 
the verse falls. If the syllabic con 
tent i« not free the verse, as in the 
ease of Pope, becomes monotonous. 
In Milton's Paradise Lost two-thirds 
of the lines art' not normal according 
to the old school of scanning a verse 
by longs and shorts. 

As the language developed, the ac- 
cent was strWhed. In the sixteenth 
century t*ert was ah important 
change in English poetry. Italian mu- 
sic came to England and flooded the 
English mind, for the Englishman of 
that period was usually a musician. 
Now if we try; to read Shakespeare 
as we did the earlier poets we find 
that it is impossible. Time rhythm has 
entered in and muted the accentual 
rhythm. There is a beautiful metaphor 
comparing thin to a grape arbor. The 
accentual rhythm is the poles, set at 
equal spaces. The time rhythm is the 
grapevines flowing over the frame 
and softening it The time rhythm is 
not fixed, it must be changed." 

Here, as he did throughout the talk, 
Professor Hillyer used examples from 
English poetry to show the change of 
time rhythm to fit the poetry with the 
accentual rhythm always underneath. 

"We noted two time elements, the 
duration of the syllable and the pause. 
If I use the word 'quick' in a line I 
cannot draw it out without using two 
syllables.' If I use the word 'slow' 
I can draw it out. as long as I wish. 
The great difficulty with reading 
Shakespeare is the overflow, the 
stumbling block of readers. It is my 
theory that the- proper way to read 
this is to lengthen the last word. For, 
if there is a pause at the end of a 
line, the sense is broken, and if there 
is no pause, the rhythm is spoiled. In 
Paradise Lost almost every line that 
overflows ends with a strong syllable 
so that it may be drawn out. When 
the time element is lost the poetiy 
becomes literary and loses its charm. 
This happened in the reaction to ths 
Elizabethan, in the eighteenth cen- 
tury. Then, in another reaction, back 
came the music, although second- 
hand. The Romanticists were steeped 
in Elizabethan poetry. Blake affords 
a fine example. But then, again, the 
poetry became literary. The imagists, 
as they were called, said that the 
traditional forms of poetry were worn

Fafbert Bridges is the most consum-

His poetry has to be studied as a 
great piece of music has to be studied. 
People will enjoy a piece of music and 
return for more hearings, but they 

expect to get poetry at the first. 

"I want to illustrate one last point, 
rhythm to give a pictorial image." 

To illustrate this Professor Hillyer 
used "The Passerby". He showed how 
the time units picture the ship stop- 
ping in the harbor, dropping anchor, 
and then the bareness of the scene. 
They picture a mountain behind the 
ship rising and descending, and lastly, 
the three masts of the ship. 

After the lecture Professor Hillyer 
read some very clever bits to break 
in, as he put it, after reading from 
"his master's voice", Robert Bridges. 
He finished with some pieces of fine 
workmanship and rare charm.

motion is pending approval of the 
Finance Committee. It is hoped that 
a book can be produced which will be 
a credit to Bowdoin, yet one which 
is not extravagant. 

"Since the senior class is yet to 
pay for their Bugle, this year's assess- 
ment, should the motion succeed, will 
be laid on the juniors, sophomores, 
and freshmen." 

Many Scholarship Applications 

Tellin" of the reduced circum- 
stances of the student body, Presi- 
dent Sills went on: "I have never 
known a time where there have been 
so many apolications for scholarship* 
and loans. The Loan Fund, however, 
is somewhat depleted for the reason 
that many recipients of aid have 
graduated, not recejved jobs, and as a 
result have had to renew their notes. 
This has reduced the total of the 
fund, which reached about twelve 
thousand dollais. 

"These are discouraging facts," said 
the President, "but it is gratifying to 
note that last year no student had to 
leave college solely for lack of funds 
if he were doing good work. We can 
tide everyone over just as much as 

"There will not be as many lec- 
tures as in the past, however." When 
asked whether the Glee Club would

trip because" the time was wrong,
